Greying skies and a strengthening breeze are moving the loch about this day. I only had a brief view and noticed only a few waterfowl bobbing. Yesterday we enjoyed a new arrival of wigeon to accompany the many tufted duck, hundreds of Canada geese, great crested grebe and at least three coot. In the sound department (as many have commented), Canada geese, jays, crows and robins (both male and female), honk, screech, caw, and twitter.
When I arrived, a red squirrel tumbled uncontrolably down a high birch catching itself only a few metres from the ground, ungainly. There was a yellow moth flitting about the observation window. Still plenty of time to pollinate flowers.
It is not a still morning as would appear at first sight.
On the blog; good news and numerous views of pine martin. At evening and early day. Pine martin are active throughout the night prowling about large territory. Perhaps the visits here are the beginning and end of the nights’ rounds and the young one has found a secure place to rest nearby…We are a happy folk.
The trials of life surely press us. We are a happy folk here. Rinchen
