After the Monty's last week, a (long overdue) sparrowhawk, (another) Mash harrier and a (first) honey buzzard were all seen from the garden. The honey buzzard was a full fat north-east Scotland tick, garden tick and best of all patch tick.
Some other non-raptor species for the year include a fine adult pec sand and 'thunbergi' yellow wagtail both at Miekle Loch, a stonechat, hooded crow and a couple of canada geese! (They all count).
This little haul of patch ticks puts me on 81.62%; 127 for the year. That's a whole five species more than this time last year!
