Wild goose chase

25/04 Up early and an 80 mile drive from Ullapool to Brora via lairg to try and catch up with the Red-breasted goose. Despite appalling weather conditions forcing me to slow to 20 mph on a couple of occasions I eventually arrived and located the bird with 60 or so pink feet, 7 or 8 curlew and 3 whimbrel thrown in for good measure. Another much needed life tick!

Stopped off at 'The Mound' on the way back and relaxed for a while listening to a couple of singing blackcaps whilst watching a few teal, greenshank and common sandpipers.
