Hey, hey mama said the way you move, Gon' make you sweat, gon' make you groove.
Blackdog! Not the Led Zep song... the small village north of Aberdeen. Sometimes you have these fantastic ideas about 'nipping out for a spot of birding' at lunchtime. Don't try it when Anderson Drive is closed by an accident! Two hours away from work, for a total of 40 min birding. grrrrr.... Last time I was at Blackdog, I got a Surf Scoter Melanitta perspicillata and a King Eider Somateria spectabilis. Today.... lots of Common Eiders S. mollissima, and 46 Sanderlings Calidris alba in various stages of breeding dress. Or undress.
Pathetic digi-binning efforts attached.
