Autumn Photos 2016

It’s time to update the Photo Gallery with the latest submissions. Jamie McPike makes it two-in-a-row in getting an entry onto the Ayrshire Species List with his photo of a Green Sandpiper at Doonfoot. Angus Hogg has a pair of photos from somewhere in South Ayrshire: one is of a Jay collecting an acorn; the second is of a female Goshawk about to collect said Jay! He also sent in a nice photo of our two Godwit species to help hone your ID skills. Finally, Dave Grant’s photo of a Goldcrest is amazing given this little creatures aren’t known to pose for a shot. Dave also sent in a few pictures from his trip to Ailsa Craig, include one of a Bridled Guillemot in the colony – an ornithological game of hunt the spectacles.

My thanks go to Dave Grant, Angus Hogg and Jamie McPike for sending in photos for the Photo Gallery.
