Dolphin twitch at Portrose
Chanterelle at Carrbridge
Vapourer at Carrbridge
Bennyboy on Nairn beach in the early hours
Spent last week at Nairn on the Moray Firth. We were very fortunate with the weather as we had a sunny and warm week. I didn't target any particular species or sites but just happy to see what I encountered as I walked about. I picked up a few new plants but the fungi was good especially around Carrbridge where I saw my first Chanterelles...troops of them and huge numbers of Boletus species. The birding highlights were Snow Buntings on top of Cairngorm, Red throated Diver and Slavonian Grebe both with young and Red Kites on the Black isle. We watched Dolphins from Portrose just yards from the beach.
