    Assnyt area

    I'm climbing Stac Pollaidh next Wednesday and was wondering if anyone could recommend some good birding / sites in the Assynt area? Been while since i've been up there and even then, it was more the Achmelvich area. Would be great to see some divers in their summer plumage. I'm actually going...

    Aviemore / Speyside

    Hey all, In the Aviemore / Speyside for the next few days. Been pretty successful so far - Black Throated Diver and Golden Eagles at Lochindorb and Peregrine and Kites at Findhorn Valley. To my amazement, I also saw what I now believe were two Quails on the way up to Findhorn Valley. Managed...

    Birdwatching in Fife?

    Hi all, I'm looking to birdwatch tomorrow and I fancy some shoreline / wetland birdwatching (after a disappointing woodland walk at Wood of Cree, on the bird front anyway. That's my 5th visit and STILL no Pied Flycatcher) Can anyone recommended some places to go in this area? Or in fact...

    Birding advice for North Uist.

    Heading to North Uist this Wednesday for my annual birding trip. This is my first time on this island so any advice for some great walks and birdwatching in general would be much appreciated. Would love to see both Short Eared Owls and Merlin (two I have never seen before). If anyone knows...

    Best walks in Mull.

    Hello everyone, I am heading to the Isle of Mull on Tuesday for a camping / birdwatching trip. Can anyone recommend some good walks to me? I've been to Mull before but it was a number of years ago. Ideally, i'd love to see some birds of prey (White Tailed, Golden Eagle, Merlin, possibly...

    Places near Glasgow?

    For my birthday, my pal and I are hoping to have a really nice day out birdwatching, especially with the nice weather next week. We live in Glasgow which isn't great for birds in general. Can anyone recommend a place that's say, no more than 2h 30 mins on the train or bus from Glasgow? Loch...

    I've had a superb few days in the Aviemore/Speyside area. It is with much relief that the Slavonian Grebes are still on Avielochan and hopefully they breed well this season. Also a very plentiful amount of Goldeneye and Greylag Geese, as well as two Teal. Other notable birds include Long tailed...

    Heading to Mull this June.

    I am incredible excited for my trip to Mull this year but I was last in Mull a number of years ago and while I saw some fantastic birds, I'd struggle to remember the specific walks which give you best chance of a worthwhile birdwatching experience. Anyone who knows the Isle of Mull well willing...

    Hello, everyone! I am an 18 year old birdwatcher from Scotland. Been interested in birdwatching for as long as I can remember and it is a hobby I hold very close to me. I only stumbled across this forum today but I wish I had sooner. It's great to have a place where I can discuss birdwatching...

    Merlins in Scotland.

    Been a birdwatcher for many years but only today found this forum. I think it's great to have a place where you can discuss birdwatching. If only I'd found this place sooner. One bird that I have always wanted to see is a Merlin but with no such luck yet i'm afraid. I know they are pretty rare...
