The Raptor was out walking in the same direction as we were yesterday but he was concentrating on the birds. In this picture he's managed to capture a flock of ten grey herons, a large flock of gulls sitting on the rocks, and another flock of dark birds flying away from him low over the water. That they are flying so low suggests oystercatchers, but the Raptor is fairly certain they're mallard.
If they're not mallard, it may be a flock of lapwings, visible centre right in this picture, which spent....
....much of its time in flight. Lapwings aren't that common here so it was very good to see them.
Meanwhile, as the Raptor puts it, "the Highlander looked out across a vast ocean."
