Loch Mallochie

Hooray for hotel internet access... otherwise I would't be able to show you this brood of Wigeons at Loch Mallochie (Loch Garten RSPB)

Lizzie contemplating how best to throw stones at Wigeons

Good to see the Wigeon are still there at Garton. And still as tame.
If Lizzie got as far as lobbing the stone in, you will have noticed that the whole family rush over to investigate the splash (they did when we lobbed stones in at least...). The reason for this seems to be that a lady comes down in the afternoon to feed them a loaf of bread, which they eagerly accept. Something worth considering next time an American Wigeon is deemed an escape just because it's nicking peoples sandwiches…
