Just a couple on noted birds during a day with the grand-children. My first Osprey sighting of the year, 0915 over the Raemoir fishery, seen from the car. A Red-legged Partridge around Milton of Cullerlie area, Couper's Road not far from Flora's. Is this quite a common bird around here ? A first sighting for me, pulled in to a passing place to allow other traffic through and it flew across the road and landed in the field about 5 yards from my car, quite a striking bird seen that close.
I spent this morning there and the views of the Gannets are fantastic,along with the Auks and a few Ravens.I'm sure the numbers have grown since my last visit a few years ago.
Loch of Skene this evening withh the usual suspects but my first sighting here of Kingfisher. West end, passed me whilst I was standing at waters edge going north to south.
