On the 9th July:
A drive to Hemel Hampstead to pick up Detlef Davies, then the three of us left for the long drive to Aviemore, calling in at the Loch of Lowes where we failed to see any Ospreys, then later finding a place to camp in Rothiemurchus Forest. We only had time to look around our camp site seeing a Red Squirrel, a Roe Deer and a Treecreeper.
On a sound recording trip to the Picos de Europa Mountains in Northwest Spain.
On a visit to Severn Beach, I saw 2 Arctic Skuas, blown up the estuary by the wind.
A drive to Pittville Park in Cheltenham to see an adult Night Heron.
