Scotland Birding

We had a great time when we were in Scotland on tour last weekend among some good company in a great hotel. We more or less cleaned up on all the specialities with everyone getting decent views. The one thing we missed out on was Scottish Crossbill with no contenders coming our way; in fact I’m told there are few being seen this year among the Crossbill flocks. However, Slavonian Grebes, Black and Red throated Divers, Golden Eagle, Osprey, Red and Black Grouse, Capercaille, Ptarmigan, Dipper and Ring Ousel all put in an appearance. In fact we managed just short of 100 species. Not bad for a weekend in Scotland in April.

I’ve already started taking bookings for next year’s tour. If you are interested take a look at the itinerary at the bottom of this link http://www.wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk/tours/longer-tours-pelagics/ and send me a mail at carl@wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk
