Loch Tay at Kenmore

Spent a few days in Perthshire. Weather not good for getting on to some of the mountain tops but plenty of walking and some wildlife to look at. On the summit of Ben Vrackie there were 4 Ring Ouzels and a Wheatear, plenty of Wheatears on some lower ground and Common Sandpiper at Kenmore. A fine Golden Eagle was viewed from the Schiehallion road and more surprising was a Green Woodpecker at Strath Tummel. A bit early for alpine flowers but the first flowers of Purple Saxifrage were out on the mountains of Glen Lyon, both Fir and Alpine Clubmoss were easy to find near summit of Carn Gorm.
