Smew, who Barney McGrew............

A Drake Smew reported at Monikie got me started for the day and I ended up at Barry Buddon by mistake and found another Short-eared owl, a Fieldfare, a Stonechat and a Merlin which very considerately sat on a post for me although far away. Also from Kinnordy and Lintrathen a Crossbill very high in a tree and some Whoopers at a great distance but still Ok!!

No light for good ones, forecast is sun for Tuesday!!
