I spent a week with a friend of mine in Scotland last week, staying where @Galanahad done earlier in the summer. Conditions couldn't have been much worse at times but at least everywhere was green and I didn't have a guilty conscience about using as much water as I needed from the spring the cottage draws it's supply from. The trip was never about birds but the still rather rare and elusive Pine Marten, a creature I had never seen before never mind photograph. However, I did get out of the cottage for a drive on a couple of occasions and along the way spotted a new bird for my BY. A pair of high flying 136) White-tailed Eagles, a species I have seen just once before and then too far away to photograph. This was no exception really but the BY demands EBC!
