In the grounds of Ninewells Hospital today (27th) lunchtime - Chiffchaff, Great-Spotted Woodpecker, Treecreeper, 2 Buzzards - along with usual
blue tits, great tits, chaffinch, robin, blackbird etc. We also have an almost daily visit from a big female Sparrowhawk, who brings
her lunch (usually pigeon) and eats it outside the window of the lab I work in - fascinating to watch!

Nice views of a White tailed see eagle today just north of Dundee,I'm sure it was having a good look at some of our livestock because it circled the house a few times after about 10 minutes it headed north towards the glamis area.
