This is a great time of year for spotting waders on passage to their wintering home. Lossie Estuary and beach are great places to sit and watch as the divers and skuas and godwits and knots and dunlin etc.fly by. Some come into the estuary for a feed.
Luckily, some of the migrants have popped into the mud pool at Wester Delnies pig farm, and are very easy to see from the road (be careful though, its a very fast road!).
Here are a few photos.
