Scotland Day 2

Red Squirrel

Common Gull

Ok, another very brief post, just before we go out for our last full day. Yesterday was spent around the east coast, after getting great views of "Scottish Type" Crossbills and a superb pair of Parrot Crossbills, absolute beasts! We also finally caught up with the unusually hard black grouse from the dreaded screen at Tuloch Moor. Eider, Long-tailed Duck, summer plumage Great Northern Diver, Red-throated Diver, Sandwich Tern, Common Scoter, 1st Summer Spotted Redshank and a few other nice bits and bobs were all seen yesterday. The sun is shining and spirits are high ahead of today's West Coast visit. A more detailed blog from yesterday and today will be online later!!
