Monikie, Easthaven and Arbroath - Gulls, Ducks and Waders

Posted in alphabetical order, some photos from Angus taken with my new Tamron 150 - 600mm lens and Nikon D3200 DSLR. I think the camera isn't doing the lens justice or more likely I'm not.

Forfar Loch and Kinnordy, and some from Arbroath beach

A bit on the breezy side today at Forfar Loch and worse when we arrived at Kinnordy in the afternoon. We did find a first for the year, a Great Crested Grebe at Forfar Loch and now two Lesser Black-backed Gulls there as well. Not much at Kinnordy but some Teal close to the hide and later at Arbroath a mixed group of waders including, Ringed Plover, Dunlin, Redshank, Sanderling, Turnstone, Curlew and Oystercatcher.
