The BIRDS!!!!! don’t worry not the scary hitchcock type.

Well today has been a twitchers delight. The sun has had his hat on & the birds have been enjoying every minute. We started the morning with ringed plover feeding on Laide beach and a small group of Dunlin feeding right on the waters edge whilst trying to avoid the waves.

Throughout the day the Swallows have been putting on quite a display feeding & chasing one another. They even managed to pose for a couple of pictures.

 

By early evening a couple of Siskins came to have a nibble on some nearby trees  &  Wheatear popped by but didn’t stay long. So all in all we’ve seen a fair few birds only a matter of metres from the house.
