Bus mans holiday

After spending Sunday night at a cracking wedding at Pittodrie house hotel near Aberdeen I decided to re-visit birding locations from my past.

First stop was Newburgh and the Ythan, thousands of Common Eider were strewn across the river mouth and a very healthy number of Sandwich Terns were on colony at the far side dune system.  The lighting was perfect for digiscoping and a lot of the heathland birds posed very conveniently.

RSPB Loch of Strathbeg was very quiet, however I've just checked on birdguides and looks like I missed a shorelark! The breeding Tree Sparrows proved a nice addition to the day though.

Last stop was Fraserburgh Seawatching viewpoint, nice surprise of the day was a Black Guillemot close to shore, nasty surprise of the day was a huge amount of hypo needles and drug paraphernalia.

A cracking day wandering down memory!
