Gus's Scottish List 2017

A New Year and time to get out there again.
Stayed local today and tried to pick up some of the Rarities which are still hanging around.
My local patch is Kinnordy Loch, a mile from my house and I tend to bird mainly in Angus and North-east Scotland....unless something nice turns up elsewhere north of the Border.
I'm lucky to do a bit of travelling with my job and this helps a lot to pick up species which aren't local'
so here goes..........
