Atmospheric (aka driech!)

Brilliant tour today, good company but rotten weather!

Nice views of Red Throated Diver on Loch en-route to Findhorn Valley but no sign of the Black Throats.
Two Golden Plovers at Lochindorb, one bird in full plumage was a nice bonus sighting. as was the Ringed Plover on the Lochside.

Various Mountain Goats  

Ram-Note the holes in tips of horns, for ear rings? 

Juv Cuckoo, was being fed by Meadow Pipit

It rained all day in the valley, sometimes heavy, sometimes light, but always wet.

A brief fly-by of an immature Golden Eagle was nice seeing as it was an Eagle and Ouzel special, however the Ouzels were to let me down once again!  I really will have to source a new area for these on workshops!
