Well, its all go in Lothian right now. We nipped down to Hound Point on Sunday for a bit of shearwater watching, and the way it is looking we scored two Scottish ticks at once. I'm sure this image will make a useful contribution to the identification discussions, especially regarding separation of Scopoli's from pieces of driftwood:
We also tried a wee bit of busking but on playing ‘Flower of Scotland’ we were told firmly there was only one Corries.
But before that on Saturday we had a few good fly overs. As
well as curlew and greylag over the garden (neither annual here), we had a
tree pipit flyover. That one was hard work – we were sat in the sun, strumming
away and having a coffee when it flew over calling away. Get in – full fat
patch tickerooo. This means 85 species, 108.5%, and a patch list of 104.
