So that was a bunch of five Goldies - what could be next?! A road side Buzzard that was hovering had us pulling in for a better view and this scored us our next bunch of five as a WT Eagle drifted into view! A scan about picked up another WTE close to the first one and three more flying on the other side of the loch!! You couldn't make it up. We travelled on seeing good numbers of Shag, about 200, a very obliging juv Herring Gull that I had to shuffle around to get the shot.
Not a great deal else of note for the day as the sightings continued in the usual manner.
I had a phone call from f-stop this morning to come see an unusual bird as it didn't look like anything in the bird books. I arrived at the scene wondering what this was going to be. Quite a few Bullfinches were flying about but they were too small, the Blackbirds were too big plus the bird we were looking for was really pale. Ten minutes of searching and we had the bird. It was certainly pale and very striking in flight but too distant to get anything on it. We approached the bird and set the scope up to find....a leucistic Song Thrush! Ah well, it might have been something good. On the journey back home I found 24 Pink-footed Geese too - result.
