Took my daughter out for a drive to Kingoldrum, Lintrathen area tonight to look for a Barn owl, no luck but did find 6 Tawny owls and a possible Short-eared owl ( larger and much paler underneath ) as well as a Fox.

Magpies

Postby Neil Young » Sun Feb 28, 2010 10:17 pm

x2 Magpies today in Glenisla. Nothing much else apart from a few Buzzards and lots of snow!! - couldn't get from Glenisla over Kilry Hill because
of drifting snow on the road - hoped to see some Black Grouse - maybe next week.

4 Waxwings this afternoon at usual Woollen Mill spot in Forfar.

Big raft of 50+ auks at Lunan Bay this morning, bit far out for my puny bins but think they were Razorbills, but I'm no expert!

Forfar Waxwings March 04 2010 (morning)

Postby HarryB » Thu Mar 04, 2010 7:42 pm

Unfortunately, there are road repairs exactly where Mark Caunt has been regularly seeing Waxwings in Forfar.
North Street is closed at Service Road and there is a really strong smell of gas around the area and I assume the road repairs are related to that.
Better to be helpful, than hurtful!

One Waxwing in Arbroath, opposite entrance road to leisure centre, as previously posted. Also 4 Waxwings in Forfar, North Street, but not feasible to stop owing to road works. One Lesser Black-backed Gull in gull roost at Forfar Loch, east end.
