    Very quiet on my local patch at the moment but yesterday 3 Wheatears passed through and this morning a single Wheatear.
    Also this morning 3 Sparrowhawks notes and a female Stonechat.
    Conditions are getting better and better for Autumn Migration so I hope to get some cool stuff in the coming days.

    The Cairngorms is a stunningly beautiful place Dalbeth. Been there a few times, and nothing beats seeing an Osprey, Superb birds.

    I was thinking this morning about the lack of Swifts I've seen this Summer. I honestly can count on one hand how many I've seen . My daughter says she's seen a few but not as much as previous Summers. I've also not seen a lot of Swallows as well. It's a worrying time.

    This morning on my local patch the local pair of Peregrines whizzed calling right past me.

    i was working in the Cairngorms and staying in a big chalet in Badaguish, plenty of house martins there they build their nests under the beams of the chalet.

    Just dawned on me why they are called House Martins.:56:

    A friend of mine acted on a report of a hiker and went up onto the top of the Cairngorms Plateau the others day and got good view at a distance not to disturb of a superb Male Snowy Owl!!!!
    He has found his own in past including a famous Female Snowy Owl Back in the late 90s Up there on top of the Cairngorms.
    Over the last 70 years a 5km square location up there seems to be a hot spot for this very rare bird on these shores with birders or hikers coming across them every so often.
    To me that is better than winning a Million Pounds,priceless.

    Superb Cider. One of the great birds, and sights, in nature.

    0BD58FB7-1548-4BDC-A78A-90DF1ACBCD72.jpeg Ruby Roo right now on her Garden Bed In The shade out of the Heatwave.
    Just had a Migrant Hawker Dragonfly hunting in my garden but could not get my Camera Phone near it:31::56:
    Also a Sparrowhawk flew over my house but on the whole pretty quiet.
