I did see some great birds, lots of lapwings on the Lagoons, a kestrel hunting over the grass and a few velvet scoters on the Firth of Forth. But if that Lapland bunting reported from this area a few days ago, was still around, I totally missed it....
As many readers may know, I lead beginners' birdwatching walks for Edinburgh Council Adult Education Programme. The next term starts 10am Mon 22nd February 2016. Then a series if early summer evening birdwatching classes, Tuesday evenings for 5 weeks from 19th April 2016.
Next term I'm also teaching a Tuesday morning (10am) Winter Wildlife Class for 8 weeks from 19th January 2016.
