Scotland 8/5/12

A weeks trip with Jake and Mick was very successful with a whole batch of yearticks for our UK yearlist. The areas we concentrated on were the Cairngorms and Mull. We flew up to Aberdeen airport and hired a car. The total number of bird species seen was 137.

Tonight and tomorrow night were spent at Mondhuie B&B in Nethy Bridge and is well recommended.
