Late morning surprise!
With a deterioration in the weather it was a a shock to find 4 Stonechats together feeding on the edge of a drain along the top road and then in fields perching on the stone walls - 3 adult males and a female. A Carrion Crow had a go at catching one several times but failed miserably (thank goodness)
1 f Goldeneye on the water
Most of the Canada's had deserted to either Cold Edge or Dean Head
