Scotland 2016 day four

It snowed all day today but we still got out and managed to not see any Capers.

Findhorn Valley
The view this morning 
We did find a Redstart and Ring Ouzel in a couple of hours this morning before heading home for a lazy day at the cottage. With the snow falling all day the birds have been busy feeding in the garden with Siskin and Chaffinch in large numbers. Meadow Pipits have been feeding in the garden too and I counted 42 at one point. A Sparrowhawk flew over the garden today and a Merlin was seen at Findhorn too adding to a growing raptor list consisting of  Golden Eagle, Goshawk, Rough-legged Buzzard, Peregrine, Osprey, Red Kite, Common Buzzard, Kestrel, Sprawk and Merlin

View from the cottage this evening.....amazing how quick the snow melted away!

Ring Ouzel
Meadow Pipit
