Well, I suggest going for Caper over New Year when you will be able to legitimately patrol wherever you like in the forests without disturbing breeding.

Corncrake early June at Balranald should unlock the tick.

Strontian... well, its a nice place to be anytime, just do a week on Ardnamurchan and forget Mull, they haven't got anything you can't find on that bit of the mainland.

Good luck in all your endeavours!

Common here in Russia but I'm yet to actually see one!

Found my first Corncrake on my first autumn trip to Scilly in 1984. Took till last year to see my second. Although I can remember hearing them when we lived at Upavon on Salisbury Plain in the early 60's.
