A beautiful day but fairly quiet for birds. A few highlights emerged!! Excellent views of a Red -throated Diver on one loch and a pair of Common Scoter on another was of interest. An "excursion" out of the recording area up the "Glen Road" to various sites around Lossit was a change and produced Little Grebe, Tufted Duck, Spotted Flycatcher and Blackap.
Later in the evening a further excursion for Corncrakes and Spotted Crake was successful. On returning home a Corncrake was located immediately opposite the house but thankfully far enough away not to interrupt sound sleep!!!
