You may have noticed how critical I was being of autumn here in Aberdeenshire, and how I thought room for improvement was minimal. Well, it cannot be doubted that this weekend has proved me wrong, and that I now see things in a different light. All over Britain this weekend, there has been a mass migration of birds, from really quite rare ones to the most abundant ones. This movement has been big enough to effect Aberdeenshire.

Early on Friday morning, the first signs of movement...

If I had to be frank with you all, and I know I have said this before, birding hasn't been at its best up here in Aberdeenshire recently. It's not because the birders in this county aren't trying. I guess you could leave it down to the fact that there aren't enough of us in the county, but that's not completely justifiable. In my opinion the reason this autumn hasn't been so good bird-wise is because of the wind. This autumn so far the winds have either been very light, or they have been westerly...

Having read of the first day of the Scottish Birdforum Bash, you can now read about the second and final day. Enjoy!

13th September (2nd Day of the Bash):

When I woke up early on Sunday morning, I looked out the window and smiled. The weather wasn't very good, and according to Met Office, the winds were turning into the East, which meant there was quite a good chance of seeing some slightly rarer species on the second day of the Scottish Bash, especially when our first...

As a special birding weekend passes, two hopefully special blog entries follow it. This weekend, as any reader of this blog will know, it was the Scottish Birdforum Bash. As far as I am aware, I will be the only person that will blog the occasion. As there is a limit to how much I can post in a blog entry, there will be two blog entries, this one charting the first day and the next charting the second. Most of you that will probably read this (although not all) will know what was seen by either...

It's September, a fantastic month for birds as rarer species can be found amongst vast hoards of migrating commoner birds, sea-watching proves fruitful and winds start thinking about going in to the east. Surely its going to be a good month? Well, September has started fairly nicely for me, with a couple of nice, scarce birds seen today. Read on to find out what those species are.

I woke up this morning to hear the light tap of rain hitting my window....
