I've not really made the effort to get out since coming back from the hols mostly due to some nasty weather so todays tour was just the ticket. We started off nice and gentle with some Oystercatchers, Hooded Crow, Buzzard and a few Common Gulls before banging in a couple of WT Eagle. Great Northern Diver was the next one to make the list with Slavonian Grebe not far behind. Three Otters performed superbly with the mum bringing a huge fish ashore and the youngsters giving us a close swim by. We'd spotted three swans in the distance but hadn't yet identified them so we drove a bit closer. As we got out the motor a Woodcock flushed from the scrub in front of us - excellent. The swans turned out to be three Mute Swan - not a common bird here so a good sighting. Little Grebe numbered five, a male Goldeneye, a spring of Teal and a few Curlew were added to the list before we viewed a few Red Deer. A quick look for Golden Eagle produced some nice stags, a Kestrel and a few Ravens before a shower of sleet moved us on. Another brief stop produced Siskin, Blue Tit, Chaffinch and a single Crossbill before we picked up a raft of Otters. An unusual sight of a mum with three cubs.
