Early start

Out at 5am today, but still not much worth shouting about! A couple of Lesser Whitethroats still singing as well as half a dozen of their common cousins, 4 Manx Shearwaters heading west into a cold, strong wind up the Forth and a Whimbrel early afternoon. All very quiet.

On a much happier note, I read of the recent demise of one of the UK's most notorious egg-collectors who fell to his death from 40ft up a Larch Tree. Ha ha!! Pity he didn't land on a sharp, rusting metal spike and linger a while, contemplating his part in the decline of some of Britain's rarest species. Never mind. That's one of the b******ds out of the way. Here's hoping the rest go similarly quickly and painfully.
