Hot & Cold

Chcked patch this morning in glorious sunshine and shirt sleeves (it was that warm), apart from the 3 Common Scoters down at the Houb it was dead !

Decided to make a visit to the mainland to order some some wood for our sun (wet) room and paid a visit to the Lesser Scaup now residing on Loch of Freester, then thought whilst i was on the mainland may as well pay the south a visit. Managed to see the Subalpine Warbler at Scatness, majority of the time in flight and probably got one of the most worthless photos of it ! A very quick search for the Laughing Gull again drew a blank, but there was some good news with Mr Marshall finding a Great Reed Warbler on Out Skerries and hopefully this will transfer to new birds tomorrow ? I live in hope providing it stops raining.
