Here Comes The Sun

The doom and gloom of yesterday was banished today with relatively warm sunshine and blue skies, at last. With the conditions i decided to try  the Red-throated Divers again, unfortunately they decided to keep their distance only coming within 10 metres of the shore. The Dunlin were around again shepherding their brood of 6 chicks around, and this Arctic Skua seemed content with my presence drinking from the loch.

Your Dunlins must have adopted a couple of chicks as they only normally lay 4 eggs!

Maybe? Dr Marshall rung 5 last year in the same spot but there have been 2 pairs around so maybe they have mixed? Only 1 pair this morning and no sign of any chicks.
