After our winter shutdown, Tartan Birder is back. The weather in the west of Scotland hasn't been conducive to birding over the last few weeks, but I have had a few recent highlights including, a flock of 24 redwings in Kelvingrove Park, Glasgow, and several Buzzards spotted in Renfrewshire.
Hopefully 2015 will be a great birding year for me and you can read regular updates, including photographs, here on the blog. I've included below a brief list of what to expect over the coming months.
A trip to Chatelherault Park, Lanarkshire, including the AGM of the Butterfly Conservation Society.
The Tartan Birder heads south...again. A visit to RSPB Leighton Moss.
Loch of Lowes - Osprey Watch!
Scottish Bird Fair 2015.
Sea Watching in Cumbria - the Tartan Birder visits RSPB St. Bees.
Of course, I will include updates on my visits to local nature reserves, including RSPB Lochwinnoch, RSPB Baron's Haugh, Possil Marsh, Millichen Farm, Loch Ardinning, Hogganfield Loch and Glen Moss.
I hope to continue reviewing binoculars, scopes and monoculars. The following reviews will be published over the coming weeks:
Hawke Frontier ED 8x43
Viking MD 6.5x32
Viking AW 65mm Spotting Scope
