Our first full day was Monday 19th March and it was bright and sunny.

We headed to Lochindorb, an area that produced lots of interesting images when we visited in 2014. First signs were not encouraging - the usual Red Grouse were not appearing and the lake was mostly frozen. We di find a lone Oystercatcher nicely perched on a rock. Just got lined up or a shot and it conveniently flew to another rock a couple of hundred yards further down. A careful approach in the car and it stayed this time.

Continuin round, there was nothin of note that was photographable until near the far end when a Red Grouse gave us the once over.

After a few minutes, it calmly made it's way to the side of the road near where we had parked up.

That was the sum total of Lochindorb - diappointing!!!

We then made our way to the coast for the incoming tide, starting at Udale Bay which is a RSPB reserve on the south shore of Cromerty Firth. Loads of waders and Geese but all distant so it was a matter of concentrating on the fly-by Great Black-backed Gulls.

Following the coast, evrything was too distant except for a Shag nicely sun-bathing by the road-side.Too close for the camera so I concentrated on a head shot.

End of Day 2.
