A rare pictureless post tonight. A great message on WhatsApp this afternoon from Bob Dack had me scuttling off to Bothal Pond to see my first county tick of the year - Black winged Pratincole. I missed last years bird ( found by the same observer) but now have had both Collared and Black winged in the home lands. Result!
I might try a second visit tomorrow if its around, as there were some great photo opportunities today as it flew past in good light at close range. I didnt have any bins with me let alone camera, so thanks to Bob, Dave and Andy for letting me get a good look at the bird through their gear before I had to get back to work.
