2 county ticks for me - an overdue purple heron and county first: 1s male collared flycatcher
|County bird of the year?|
A selection of smashing year-ticks: surf scoter, king eider, white-billed diver, black throated diver, ptarmigan, capercaillie, crested tit, golden eagle, great white egret.
Some great birds at West Hartford too! ~ black-tailed godwit, little ringed plover, ringed plover, wood sandpiper... whatever next?
|Great encounter with Ptarmigan on Cairngorm|
|Eight Osprey seen during Highlands visit|
|Obliging king eider - a stunning sea duck|
|Pristine great-white egret|
