At Lossie East Beach the tide was very high but it was an ideal place for a sunny lunch whilst scoping the gulls – one of which was a Lesser Black-backed. Onto Spey Bay where Shelduck, Mute Swan and Goosanders were added to our list plus a very welcome open toilet at the visitor centre.
Next stop – a well hidden, small flooded gravel pit with Moorhen, Coot, Goosander, Little Grebe, Tufted Ducks and Goldeneye whilst in the surrounding trees Long-tailed and Great Tit, Siskin and Goldfinch and Greenfinch. Finally, to Loch Oire to complete the day with a handsome Ring-necked Duck. It was then homeward … and still no heron!
