No Place Like Home

Posted Tuesday 18th April 2017 at 17:35 by Green Sandpiper
I've often made a big deal about how Baron's Haugh RSPB is my local patch, and involves a 20 minute drive to get there. I've always felt it was worth it, to immerse myself in what was my first reserve visited, where the wonders of this unassuming place in industrial Motherwell were first laid open to me. I think of ten of the halcyon days of summers past, 6am visits on summer mornings to visit 'warbler corner' and later in the summer for ruff, blackwit, and on more than one occasion, Little Stint....

A Taste of the Future?

Posted Tuesday 14th February 2017 at 20:45 by Jonathan Mitchell
I have always wanted to see a Little Egret. This is not a terribly easy wish to fulfil in Scotland, but I noted with interest that one appeared to be wintering at RSPB Loch Leven. With this in mind, I jumped at an opportunity to go birding there last Saturday.

Arriving at the reserve, an enquiry at the visitor centre revealed that the bird was still around, and had been seen the previous day. Although I was desperate to see the Little Egret, I was also here for the birding in general,...

Knowledge and Expectation

Posted Tuesday 7th February 2017 at 18:41 by Green Sandpiper
We all make a big deal about our knowledge, or gen. Whether its about a particular species, or a particular area, 'gen' is one of our most valued commodities. But what happens when this knowledge turns the hope of a good day out into the expectation of a good day out? Is a little bit of knowledge a dangerous thing?

Take last weekend. Boss- chick had allowed me free rein on the saturday to have a full day out. I set my sights on Musselburgh and my first trip to SCotland's east...

Waxwing Encounter

Posted Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 21:53 by Jonathan Mitchell
It took 4 years, 22 days, 2 hours, and 20 minutes, but I have done it at last. At 16:10 today, I had my second ever encounter with a Waxwing.

In 2012, when I was relatively new to birdwatching, I came across their page in my book, and from that moment on I wanted to see one. When I saw in the papers in November that it was an invasion year, I became obsessed with them. I lived and breathed Waxwings, and could think of nothing else for weeks on end. I had only ever seen them in books,...
