Won’t be easy to get past this feathered guard at the gate the field…
(somewhere on the northern side of Loch Gorm if memory serves me right)
Caught on picture somewhere in the Loch Gorm area, a Curlew taking off from ground flying right towards us.
Spotted in the high grass next to the ‘back road’ from Portnahaven to Port Charlotte near Lossit Bay, a Curlew. It was running along the road, then crossed it in front of my (stopped) car, looked around and ran back. I’m told it might have been a distraction effort to lure me away from a nest.
