    Thanks Sioux,(I think enthusiastic rather than professional is more apt :50:) i could have stayed and watched their coming and going for hours, they really are a special creature to travel all the way to Africa and back, i might go back to the place i watched them at the weekend and see if they're still around.:50:

    Very quiet of late on my local patch but i did get cracking views of the local Male Peregrine yesterday morning and the morning before the local Female Kestrel.
    Tomorrow morning I have a feeling I will see something cool with Ruby Roo:84:

    A few from Skreen early on Saturday morning. there was a scattering of Swallows there but no where near the numbers of last weekend, maybe the rest have gone on ahead and these are the stragglers.:39:

    Just saw a robin in my partners garden, sat on the washing line in the middle of the garden singing it’s head off, daring any competition to come and try their luck, not sure if it’ll be here all winter now or will move south soon, here’s hoping it stays, it’ll noise up the gang of sparrows

    Gadwall are one of my daughter's favourite birds. She absolutley loves their velvety feathers, especially down the back or their necks. Stunning birds good friend

    I was driving this morning going towards Parkhead. I stopped at a give way right near our house and was surprised to see a Grey Wagtail. It's the first Grey Wagtail I've ever seen not near a water source. Great sighting though

    Took my cat down to the local pond. We spotted mallard , coots & grey herons.

    Chased a few squirrels up the tree too.

    While not wild cat he certainly acts like one
