Bottle-nosed Dolphins were showing very well at Chanonry on Friday and Saturday, with quite a number of passage Sandwich Terns going through as well. A Whitethroat and Willow Warbler in the bushes around the lighthouse probably migrants on the move as well.
On the other side of the Moray Firth at Findhorn Bay yesterday BWWC guests on a fieldtrip were treated to 5 fishing Ospreys! It was hard to tell if these were lingering local birds or Scandinavian birds moving through when the arrival of one from a great height from over the sea, seemed to confirm some at least were the later. Small groups of Dunlin and Ringed Plover wheeled around the shoreline, and from the south end of the bay, Greenshank, Sandwich and a few Common Terns fed on the rising tide.
