Bit chilly

Lots of Pinks around today with more than 500 at Loch of Bosquoy and a good scattering elsewhere. Tramped around today for little reward, an on-foot Pied Wag at Howaback means I can have that and maintain the non-motorised list for Patchwork. Best bird was the male Siskin on the feeders when I got home.

The tour around was for WeBS and there were good numbers of things at Bosquoy, including three Shoveler, but late afternoon at Sabiston produced 76 Whoopers, 10 Pintail and 9 Shoveler.

Taxi service duties took me to Kirkwall mid afternoon where I explored the PDC and Scapa, the Eider at Scapa were obliging.
