    Tayforth Birding

    When I was last up at the Red Head the farmer told me the Corn Buntings in the area were classed as of National importance and that a scheme was in place to help them and support farmers to help. Near the entrance to Ethie Castle there was a sign erected telling you a bit about it.

    Wild in Aberdeen - City and Shire

    You can add it if you don't mind Delia, yes it was very windy, but I carry(well actually my wife was lol) a tripod to get a steadier shot, I'm still not able to walk far, but managed down the cliff path to the Peregrines territory, 2 chicks apparently, but too small to see from the path yet.
