Youngest daughter's second day of her holidays was going up and down the North East Coast. Due to the weather there are lots of things to see as birds get blown where they might not possibly want to be.
Great Black Backed Gull, still not mature. Also a native.
This one, however, is an Icelandic Gull.
One of my favourite birds, Oyster Catcher. Although these are in the proper place, by the sea, you might be interested to know about their nesting habits. They prefer gravelly ground and flat. So what suits them can actually be found on flat roofs!! Aberdeen has many of them as it had a big building surge with supermarkets and industrial units etc . Aberdeen is one of two places in the whole world where Oyster Catchers can be seen nesting on roofs. Indeed there is a chap in Aberdeen who you can contact should you find a baby that has fell off the roof and he will come and put it back!
Seals in the Ythan Estuary, just north of Aberdeen.
The Ythan Estuary.
Seals playing. or possibly......
Two mute swans.
And a redshank.
As you can see - much better weather - altho "Its ay cold".
What you will not be able to see as it was too far out for a camera to capture was a Hump Backed Whale at Collieston, just North of Aberdeen and South of us.
We got it all here!
