Good afternoon at Killiecrankie, Pied Flycatcher, Wood Warbler and Garden Warbler all singing in the same small clearing with a Pied Flycatcher. Also Nuthatch on the feeders. Particularly good to see Pied Fly back at Killiecrankie, several years since I last saw one there.

Hooded Crow, 1 mile north of Marykirk on the west side of the Laurencekirk road, 12/10/2019. I've seen a Hoodie between Marykirk and Laurencekirk during the last four autumn/winters. On return journey the bird was feeding in a field being ploughed on the west side near the highest point on the road.
