    Seen a male HenHarrier a few years ago from a hide at Lochiinnoch Bird Sanctuary. It flew no more than 10meters from the hide. We were there looking for Smew, and we got right close to that bird as well. One of our best birding days, a Hen Harrier and a Smew, BRILLIANT.

    As a Winter lover, I'm always a wee bit disappionted when it's the Winter Solstice. Now the dark nights are,slowly, getting shorter. I even got a text from a Summer loving mate reminding me the days are now getting longer.

    Squirrel treats a snake's body like an all-you-can-eat buffet...

    Hi Cidermaster , the owl was flying above and in front of my car , it was heading in the same direction as me for about 5 seconds or so . This was about 90 minutes before dawn . So I knew it was an owl by the shape , but couldn't identify it to be truthful .

    Have had 4 sightings of a puma in Angus. Distance between sightings would suggest at least 2 different cats.Spaniel chased one then decided cowardice wasn't too bad.
