Yesterday I gave into temptation and went to twitch the American Coot in the Highlands, in the company of Dave Brown and Tom Middleton. Leaving at half 1(am), and arriving at 7, we were soon getting excellent views of the Yanky Coot. After watching it for about 30 mins, we decided to go and look for the Ring-Billed Gull at Dingwall, which gave absolutely mega views on the grass in front of the Academy! Final stop was Loch Garten for Crested Tit and Capercaillie.. No sign of any Capers but...
CRESTED TIT!! Fantastic birds!
Great views of Ring-Billed Gull
