Well done, John. In all my visits down there - usually 1 or 2 a year, I've never had a view like that of Beardies, and definitely not at that spot - haven't even heard them there. There is a grit...

I've had very little luck seeing the Beardies at the Tay reedbeds, but when I have they've tended to be by the eastern pool at Port Allen (just west of Errol). Only once have I had a relatively close...

I've got some photos I could supply of a male hovering very close by, but as suggested by Dave, a copy of the book (when published) would be a suitable form of compensation for their usage. My name...

Had Stock Dove male displaying to a female on the 20th December in Crail, Fife. She flew off however, so no idea if he was successful in the end or not.

Usually a Herring Gull. Hopefully something else, for a change (and if I get out before the sun comes up I might get a Robin or a Blackbird instead).

Well, the reasonable weather forecast disappeared overnight and became persistent (heavy-ish) rain all day, so 3.6 miles to work in the rain produced a grand total of just 12 species, and as I came...

Can't say I've ever seen Feral Pigeons in trees, though they must roost somewhere (and I don't generally look in trees at night). Woodpigeons would seem likeliest for roosting in urban trees. Feral...
