good pack up this morning and good journey back down to Mussleburgh with fabulous
light and views through the big mountains.
We were very tempted to stop up here but I suppose we have to go home
sometime. As soon as we had settled in I
shot off down to the scrapes in the last of the day’s light, mainly to get the
tide times, but when I arrived it was all excitement as there was a jack snipe
there!! Our friend from the SOC at
Aberlady was there and had spotted it.
There were masses of other birds there as well and I had turned up at
the optimum tide time. Large numbers of
oystercatchers, bar-tailed godwit and gulls with half a dozen herons, good
numbers of curlew, teal and mallard, ruff, redshank, knot, common snipe and
jack snipe as well as several roe deer.
I managed some images in the fading light but not of very good quality. Beer o’clocked chimed and it was time for a
ready meal lasagne. To view large, please click on an image.
