A few days spent checking Osprey nests with Roy Dennis. During our rounds we found this very vocal male Brambling in pine trees next to a loch - a very rare breeding bird in Britain. The date and habitat would suggest it to be a summering bird at the very least.
The rain was torrential as we pulled into the car park at the mouth of the River Spey. Peering through the blurred window at the river i must confess that i had already written off the day as a complete disaster. However, we persevered and ended up having a superb few hours with fishing and perched Ospreys despite the continuous rain.
