Golden eagle 2 Whimbrel 127

Having sent off our French folks on the plane with tears in their eyes and seen the Purple Sandpipers yesterday today we were watching Common Sandpipers, Whimbrel and a cracking fifteeen Black Tailed Godwits in full summer plumage. In the morning on the Rhinns we saw an eagle and then in the afternoon having picked up another group we had another on the high hill.
What a day, that with three Hen Harriers (2 Males) we were really enthralled at so many opportunities.
