Had a very interesting afternoon at lower Gorple this afternoon tracking Martyn's Water Pipit down with Nick D. Jim W had it earlier though it still took some finding! We located it on the far side but were not convinced about identification until an hour or so later with better views and a single call. What a good find though it was again very flighty and did not like approach. Good to see Steve C up there as well as Martyn. Circumstances not good for digi scoping though Nick has a record shot on his blog.
1 male Peregrine over
1 Common Gull
1 Tufted Duck
3 Oystercatchers
21 Golden Plover
30+Lapwings and c20 Curlew
Loads of Canada's and a few Red Grouse
1 Dipper up there was a nice surprise as well
