Thursday I had a bit of time for looking at nothing in particular. There are plenty of Scotch Argus on the wing, posing on the verges until you point a camera at them!

Wednesday provided some good entertainment with the wildlife in good weather. Our first sighting set the tone for the day as we picked up an adult WT Eagle that gave us a cracking view as it flew past with a Buzzard giving chase!

Tuesday was a cracking day full of photographs for a change. We started with a couple of Curlew...

There has been the odd splash of rain here and there but it just helps to keep the place green. You can't beat a bit of lush vegetation with some raindrops and the Snipe helps.

The last few days have been the same old, same old - pleasant days with all the regular stuff. The camera has been fairly redundant though and you know I won't post without a few pictures! This post brings things up to date. A Cuckoo posed outside the shop but it never came close enough.
Last shot of the afternoon was a chance meeting with a female Hen Harrier. Leaning out of the window and trying to pan the camera with a slow shutter speed doesn't give the best result but that's the way it goes when the wet stuff is here!

Wednesday was another nice day. The target species for the day was Hen Harrier which we managed to get within the first ten minutes! It was a female bird that showed briefly...
Thursday - it was nice, again. A bit of a steady day as we had to work for everything but that makes the encounters all a bit special. We bagged the WT Eagles, SE Owl and Hen Harrier without too much trouble. We got some cracking views of Kestrels through the day and one of them even posed for a photo!
