Another cracking day out with not very many photos taken. We struggled a bit to start with but it soon got going with Yellowhammers, RT Diver, a couple of Common Scoter all seen before we picked up a flock of 5 WT Eagle. A Golden Eagle put in a brief appearance beside the bigger birds too. A distant male Hen Harrier was appreciated before we headed off to lunch where we saw another Golden Eagle and a single Adder. There are plenty of Skylark singing but it can be difficult to see them when they gain a bit of height.
A decent sized flock of Golden Plover were seen while we looked for Mountain Hare...
...and a decent view of WT Eagle right at the end of the day!
I did manage a few photos on my way back home - the RT Divers were a bit closer in.
We'd had Guillemot and Razorbill (below) but the closer ones had been feeding so they didn't stay on the surface for long.
The next day the male Hen Harrier was hunting along the side of the road...
...and the Turnstones that we couldn't find the previous day were in plain sight.
