I have to say that we heard them last year as well, and they did seem to be pretty static, somewhere at the top of the crags.
Take only pictures, keep only memories, leave only footprints.

We will leave it to you and the local recorder, but I very much doubt the calls will be any use at all in differentiation. You will need a few photos, ideally of the underside, of each bird. This would confirm HB vs CB and also confirm at least one adult male and female, and perhaps even a juvenile.

This would be an important event so it is worth the effort!

Good luck

I'm not sure whether you come under the Perth & Kinross or Upper Forth recording area. The county recorders are:

Perth & Kinross = Scott Paterson, email [email protected]

Upper Forth = Chris Pendlebury, email [email protected]

Hope this helps
