Big Day Blues
A big day in the life of any Man City fan today, so thought it best to be out of the house doing something until the game arrives. Decided to join Dougie for a spot of birding off isle with the Black-bellied Dipper at Scalloway high on the list. After walking up the burn to the 'big green barn' and no sign we headed back to the car, thankfully some 3/4 of the way down the Dipper appeared in front bombing down the burn. Frustrated by the briefest of views it decided not to fly back up the burn but settle on the roof of the house down by the car, where it stood for a good couple of minutes.
Next up was the catch for Gulls, nothing out of the ordinary so turned my attention elsewhere.
A trip over to Clickimin produced a Stonechat but as expected not much else.
