Spring Photos 2014

With Chiffchaffs singing and Sand Martins zipping about we can almost hope that Spring is here and good weather returns. This has also prompted me to deal with the backlog of photos sent in for the Photo Gallery: my thanks to Angus Hogg, Jamie McPike and Dave Grant. I’ve posted a selection here to tempt you. Given the awful Winter weather we’ve had it isn’t surprising that wetland birds are the strongest group. However, my personal favourite is Angus’s photos of a female Goshawk at an undisclosed site: this isn’t for her protection but yours – you wouldn’t want to get up-close-and-personal with this lady! Obviously it also gains Angus another slot on the Ayrshire Species List. Dave has also prepared some notes to help identify the Ring-necked Duck that spent some time at Trabboch.
