Soon a turnstone posed nicely:-))
Checking the sea I found a great northern diver, the largest bird of its kind that we see, the bill is very dagger like!
On the ferry we had met up with, and befriended, a group on a nature tour, our first location for the owl and they were there, scopes out and a no owl show. Research had told me, confirmed the day before by a local, that another nearby spot could be likely.
Sat in our comfy cottage the sky drew attention, much to my lazy discomfort..
On the way we spot red deer..
We set off for a walk round our local coast, a lovely snipe appeared briefly...
A pied wagtail..
A head on ringed plover as we battled through the fierce coastal wind..
The scenery up around Hougharry Bay is rather good:-))
And I get an oystercatcher auditioning for the Ministry of Silly Walks!
