If I said the wrong thing it was a Senior Moment
Oooh!!! Well done Jimmy. Super pictures to get of a Lifer - many congratulations laddie.
Any tips on where is best around Portsoy-Fraserburgh area for Black Guillemot? Also if Findlater Castle is the likeliest spot in the Portsoy area for White Billed Diver. Anything else around in the northeast corner of Aberdeenshire (from Aberdeen to Portsoy) of interest? Heading up that way tomorrow but want to maximise the opportunity so any help very welcome. Thanks in advance.
My name's Pete and this is my first post to this section. I'm new to birding, but really enjoying it. I live in Kintore but i'm spending a lot of time on the Ythan, and find the variety and volume of birds there really useful for getting my eye in to all the different waders.
I had a great morning on the Ythan Estuary and surrounding area today, probably my best to date. I was fortunate to catch up with the Cranes at Collision crossroads, Greenshank, Little Egret, Spotted Redshank, Black tailed Godwit, Ruff, Golden Plover, Ringed Plovers and the other usual waders.
I've attached a few pictures from today.
