Turned out nice again!

Life has been hectic over the last month, so the blog has taken a bit of a backseat!

Had a brilliant tour with one of my most valued  customers, Kate from Elgin.  Always great company and dispenser of encouragement and information!  Thanks Kate.

The day started very well with a flock of 12 Waxwings on the outskirts of Forres, this was a lifer for Kate and my first Waxie of the season.

The destination for the day was Loch Fleet, via Golspie and the mound.  Then Embo, Nigg and finally Udale bay.

We were extremely lucky with the weather, no rain at all and the recent gales had dropped off completely.

Total for the day was 54 species and the highlight for me were crippling views of Redwing, Waxwings and a wintering Greenshank on Loch Fleet.
