Choughed about

A super afternoon with folks from Norfolk. They had been vsisting for many years but never with me and wanted to see Choughs. Firstly though, in the clear air before later rain we had Gt.Northern Divers, Eider, Scoter, Scaup and Mergansers. Further along Loch Indaal we had
cracking views of Pale Bellied Brent and then we headed off for Chough. Over through Foreland the Northerly wind brought great views of Mull and a snowy Ben More before we headed Gorm way. No problems in locating five 'red billed' birds feeding around Machir and we enjoyed good views despite the worsening light.
