Title: Sandgarth.
Post by: George on September 16, 2010, 10:20:21 am
Sandgarth appears to be a hot-spot for migrant birds, so after a horrendous windy night, there might be some new arrivals.. So, i'll drop in and see whats about, I would really like a good photo of the pied flycatcher, a lot closer than the last ones i took a few days ago..

Hi. Tracy.. I only saw one bird flitting about the trees by the burn, it was a Warbler, what kind, i don't know..

I did'nt hang about long, as the rain was driving into my car window, and cameras and rain don't mix very well..

I then checked out the plantation at Voe Water, did'nt see any birds there, the wind was blowing the trees so hard.. Then it was off to Voxter, nothing there as well, so came back home..

Set the camera on its tripod in the lounge, might be some birds in my garden, but the window is covered by rainwater, in the northerly wind.. so it might be useless to use..
