Great Egret still at Kinnordy, also some artistic shots!!

I returned on Tuesday when the sun shone on Kinnordy and got a few better photos of the Great White Egret, it didn't last but the first two photos below were taken just as the light began to change. Also photos of three of the Winter Thrushes, a rare photo of Snipe in flight and some views for a change.

Garden Goldfinches


Taken as the mist came in and helped stop the usual over-exposure






Quite a mobile bird, this is at the west end of the loch





Still can't get the Smew to come and sit in front of the East Hide



Some of the very active Snipe at Kinnordy


This Snipe was at the roadside near Lintrathen and is almost draped in spider webs


Fieldfare at Montreathmont


Mistle Thrush on Speyside


Redwing at Kinnordy


A misty morning in Montreathmont


Looks better than tinsel





Looking from Kingussie towards the Cairngorms


There had been Redwings in this tree on a Juniper covered hillside
