Great White Egret with its mate the Otter!


The Great White Egret was showing well at the west end of Forfar Loch, until an over keen photographer approached and it flew eastwards down the loch, and disappeared. The Green Sandpiper remains at Murton, and in the late sun I got a few photos and some video from the Gladstone and Stewart Hides. I didn't see the Green-winged Teal, but most Teal were hidden in the grass.





You can't plan or script for these occasions, a capture of a frame from the original video, reduced to 1200 pixels as all photos in this blog


Maybe the same height as a Grey Heron, but nothing like the bulk











What a difference a wee bit of light makes


Flushed!

Beaver in action on the path from Orchardbank to the west end of the loch, the tree was intact a few days earlier

Pushing the zoom a bit too much

At last a drake Goldeneye came close, just wish I'd had the DSLR


Kestrel, I was capturing the snow and spotted a Kestrel hovering above the large shed
