Revision break

Returned from Ardnamurchan on Saturday, a very enjoyable and relaxing two weeks, wildlife was unbelievable, and I even got a tan! Unfortunately the next two weeks aren't going to be as relaxing or enjoyable, a load of uni deadlines, and an Animal Behaviour exam next Tuesday. Although I have managed to get out for a wander a couple of times. The Blue Tits in the camera box are sitting 8 eggs, my sister tells me they have been incubating since last Wednesday and the local Sparrowhawk is also incubating. Down Holywell this evening I was pleased to here reeling Grasshopper Warbler, singing Sedge and Reed WarblerWhitethroat and Lesser Whitethroat,  as well as young Canada GeeseLapwings on the nest, the Kestrels back in their usual haunt and more importantly the Dipper on eggs! Hopefully they will be successful in raising a family this year.
