It’s a first

Only a reference to our local Greater Sand Plover – the 15th ever record in the Britain, but the 1st for the Highlands. Having a bit of a thing for waders I could not resist the temptation to make the short trip to Dornoch to see this fabulous bird. A great place to visit with a variety of other waders including Sanderling, Dunlin and Ringed Plover all in sparkling summer plumage.

Fortunately the Plover also put on a good show…  before the rain came
