Just a quick blog to say in the morning we will be driving to Scotland for the 5th Annual Scottish Highlands Tour. A few photos below from an hour or so spent at the Flashes (Sandbach) at the weekend. Dad finally got Sand and House Martin for his 2014 "Sandbach Flashes Year List" and found a smart male Wheatear near the end of our walk to add a further year tick!
Sedge Warbler could be heard singing near the road at Elton Hall Flash and I managed to get myself a year tick, with what has to be my favourite wader - Little-ringed Plover.
Watch this space for blog updates throughout the Highlands tour and a full trip report will be available on the website when we return!
