I had a very quick scan over the firth today from the golf course car park where I saw 23 Brent Geese on the beach and a Goldeneye out at sea. I had a chat with an experienced bird watcher of many years, a Mr Campbell I believe, who very kindly pointed me toward aprox. 40 Scuap further toward the ast beach. I took a look and saw a smaller flock not far from the golf course, but unfortunately did not have the time to venture further for the rest. I did see another Goldeneye though.
Thanks to Mr Campbell, whom I notice spotting very regularly around Nairn.
