KEY POINTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - September Id Challenge -

1 Check for waders along the Gh­lean­nain, as this is a great place for find­ing some of the fresh­wa­ter-pre­fer­ring waders. Look for Ot­ters here, too.

2 Even on these nar­row roads there should be time to scan for rap­tors hunt­ing over the grass­land. And scan Loch Don for waders and gulls.

3 Any wood­land in this area is worth check­ing for spring mi­grants or perched rap­tors. Red Deer are al­ways lurk­ing some­where in this area. 4 An­other sec­tion of wood­land – Wood War­blers are pos­si­ble here, along with Tree Pip­its.

5 You have to walk the last bit of the road to Grass Point. Look out for chats, pip­its and wag­tails. There is a good chance of both ea­gles in this area.

6 Sea­watch­ing here has had a real mix of records, with even cetaceans pass­ing Grass Point. Don’t think sum­mer is the only time to see whales from here. Look for bait ball ‘ac­tiv­ity’ and scan.
