It was great to visit Speyside again and see some of the birds it is difficult to see elsewhere. One of the highlights of our visit was to visit an area where we were privilidged to watch young SE Owls last year and this visit watch a pair displaying and hunting over the same moor.
It is always great to see the Cresties and Black Throated Divers.
Black Throated Divers
EJ back at Loch Garten
5 Slavonian Grebe at Loch Ruthven.
On the way there we also saw a Magpie which was the only one we saw all holiday.
Two Peregrine also nearby above some cliffs.
Had to watch where we walked along the path to Loch Ruthven, so many toads.
Who would believe within a week we would go from this (Snow) to temperature showing 27 in car in Northallerton this afternoon.
We watched a snowboarder travel down this gulley.
