Autumn reprise

I've been writing up the Lapland Bunting eruption of last year for the bird report. An interesting, if challenging task. Once the report is published I'll probably put a link to the article on here somewhere. Many thanks to NC and to DB for their proof reading and weather interpretation skills.

Record shot of (not so) distant Red-throated Diver

I had a jaunt around the southern end of Loch of Harray yesterday morning. The Barnhouse hide revealed a superb summer plumage Red-throated Diver, closeish inshore. A further three were revealed as I headed northwards. Star birds though were the huge flock of 204 Scaup.
