|European Whitefronted Goose|
|Tundra Bean Goose|
After my fill of this stunning bird it was getting dark or at least the light had gone so it was time to head for our room in Edinburgh. I was unable to do anymore birding.
|P. o. phoenicuroides Eastern Black Redstart|
When i arrived i walked down to the edge and immediately picked up the Teal, and then a Bittern flew over. Keith and Phil joined me later and they had missed the Bittern but no matter over the next couple of hours at least 3 were seen well in flight and on the edge of the pond. 2 Whooper swan a few Water Rail and 2 Med Gull were also present. I managed a couple of color ringed reading of Mute swans White ATK and White AYH.
I did have a couple hours at Caerlaverock but didnt see much.....
