Force 8 and Merlin

So the wind picked up today to gust force 8 as the rain swung round to the South West. At the start of a Goosefest we had a buffetting day on the Rhinns. Pink Footed Goose, masses of Barnacles, Pale Bellied Brent, Scaup, grebes, White fronts and all three Divers, several hen Hen Harriers and male too. Golden Plover, Twite and a terrific view of a female Merlin
to end the day.
