14th May,2010.

A few routine duties in the morning before paying a hurried visit to the Black Isle in the late morning /early afternoon. Managed to see a very distant Red Kite, but very little was in Munlochy Bay and nothing was seen in nearby woodlands.

Left Kirkhill late afternoon and travelled down to Strathspey. The beech woodland near to Loch An Eilein held odd Wood Warbler, but things were quietening in the developing evening. A journey up Glen Feshie produced few birds, but tremendous views in the clear evening light were a compensation. Spent a little time at the southern end of the Insh
Marshes listening to the Snipe in territorial display but nothing else of interest emerged.

Headed off on the long journey south in the gradually descending darkness and had a few hours rest at the Kinross Motorway Services.
