    Thanks everyone for the tips and advice. Hugh, I had read previously about the holes being blocked up at the hotel, such a shame. Great to hear that Christina had one at La Gola Mike, that means there is hope!! Really can’t wait to get back across it was so good last year. James

    Hello, after a wonderful first trip to Puerto Pollensa last year, I’m going to be back for a week this spring. One of the species I missed last year was Scops Owl. Does anyone know if there were/ are any near Puerto Pollensa? I checked unsuccessfully the sites mentioned in the Gosney guide.

    Western Scotland birding

    There were at least 4 in the park in Darvel last Sunday. Hadn't visited the area before and I was surprised at how common they were.

    Lothian Birding

    Nice one Gus. I didn't actually intend for it to be a 2 hour challenge. That's all the time I had, was thinking just day total but maybe the 2 hours makes it more challenging and therefore fun. Yeah the field is in scope. I'd say all the area between braid hills road and blackford pond?
