a scan around the ponds produced the following
black headed gull
I then headed to the castle and walked along the footpath and down to the steppy stones stopping along the way to see if there were any migrants in the area their were plenty chiff chaffs calling but I could not get any in my bins and what looked like a blackcap but moved too fast to get a decent view
On the river near the steppy stones was this grey wagtail first of the year and also chaffinch doing its best to impersonate a flycatcher by grabbing insects in flight and returning to a high perch
something I haven't seen before has anyone else.
my Bothal list now stands at 71 species
