We booked hoping to see Dotterel but closure of the Cairngorm funicular for maintenance ruled this out. Dave emailed us with the offer of cancellation but we decided to go ahead anyway.
Glad we did, a day trip to Handa Island gave us our first view of Arctic Skua as well as Bonxies both close and clear. A magical day, the long journey flying by with the interesting facts, conversation and banter. Common Gull up close, Slavonian Grebe pair with 2young, delightful family of Goldeneye, various waders etc taking the two day total to 46 without chasing around for numbers but having time to observe and learn.
Our 5th trip with Birding Ecosse will be back next year to see if we can see a Dotterel.
Not only birds but also 3species of deer, common lizard and loads of orchids!
