A visit from Mr Falcon

Not much doing today; very windy - a male Peregrine scattered all the small waders just while I was about to go through them, so if there was an Oriental Plover there, it'll have to wait for another day.

Saturday brings Bird Race day - a keenly contested local competition, usually between 3 teams, although only 2 this year. A total of 130 species in the Lothians should win - that would be a new record. The team I've been part of has won 5 of the last 6, so we're keen to extend our run. The forecast is well dodgy though, so who knows what a good total will be. Midnight Saturday/Sunday will reveal all. I'll post the details when I wake up sometime Sunday afternoon...
