Default Hello from the Borderlands of Angus and Kincardinshire

Greetings from the borderlands of Angus and Kincardinshire. High on the Cairngorms, a chance encounter with a short-eared owl turned my attention, for the very first time, to something I enjoy so much that it has now overtaken my original interest of walking and climbing in the Cairngorms. That is wildlife in all its forms, but particularly birds, birds and erm....birds. Look forward to contributing on a regular basis as I continue my own journey along the north east coast, and through the fields west to the Cairngorms where it all began. Thank you. John

Good evening John and welcome to the forum. That's an amazing area to be doing your birding, lots of seasonal variation I'd guess. Only been up there a couple of times, once many years ago when I arrived on the very day the Loch Garten Ospreys decided to migrate , and once more recently when all my concentration was on mountain biking rather than birding. I for one look forward to reading of you exploits during your journey.

Tony
