Buffing up on Sandpipers
Day one of our guided birdwatching trip to Scotland and we arrive at John Muir Country Park, Lothian to look for some very special visitors from across the pond.
We walked across the saltmarsh and soon found our target birds, two beautiful juvenile Buff breasted Sandpipers!
These lovely waders were very confiding!
We all soaked up the views in the sunshine
The birds were feeding on the short grass behind the dunes
These birds may never have seen people before
Etienne takes aim at the sandpipers, above his head!
We left the birds still feeding happily and headed further north
Much more to come from the Scottish Highlands, please check back soon!
We are planning our next trip to the Highlands so please drop us a line if you would like to join us. We know you will love our trips!
