Yeah.... I think we'll all be grateful to see an end it to. Though I fear it won't happen for some time sadly.

Top spot of the day for me was a grasshopper warbler, one of three that I heard. Never seen one before, so quite happy with that.

Was on the river Dee near Banchory, dreadful rainy weather, but good numbers of Sand Martins, Common Sandpipers and a family of Dippers with two young.

A Hoopoe has turned up at Pittodrie Stadium, home of Aberdeen FC. It has been rooting around for at least three days on the verges of the players' car park, which is private land, and so far the assembled throngs have kept their distance so the bird is relatively undisturbed, although distant views are quite possible.

Well worth a look if you are in the area...

Hoopoes do seem to like car parks - that was where I saw my first one LOL

That's super pictures you've taken Mark.

That really must have been wonderful to watch Burnie.

Well done getting some images too lad.

We were able to watch these birds for nearly an hour, watched the Eagles being mobbed by buzzard and ravens, which even at distance aided with the id, must admit now you say it the head does look prominent on the one chasing the grouse, could be a White Tail as you suggest. The two higher up were Goldens, we did get closer views and were able to both see the head colours, but also could hear them.
