Peninsula Light

Male Reed Bunting, appropriately in the reeds by one of the Inverness Campus lochans.

(Corrected the earlier mistake where I'd wrongly said it was also known as a Bearded Reedling. That's another name for the Bearded Tit, rather than the above, and is a species we're very unlikely to see in the North of Scotland.)

Couple of Summer migrants heard singing for the first time this year: on the cycle to work, by the A9 in Inverness, a Sedge Warbler singing its cheeky song; and at dusk very close to home, a Grasshopper Warbler churring away near constantly. Only types of the usual warblers not yet noted are: Whitethroat, and Wood Warbler, though I'm sure they will be somewhere about the area.
