Yesterday I wasn't too sure about the bird species ..... today, I know these two are definitely Lapwings.
It has been such a dull, wet day that I thought twice about going up to the loch but the search for a blip spurred me on!
The Lapwings have started sharing the boat landing stage with an assortment of gulls and a moorhen or two. For years they kept to the rocks at the far end of the loch .... now they have settled in the much busier end near the car parks and cafe. Not easy to get close ..... the slightest activity and they're off.
