Wildlife and Walking Tour
Well it has been a busy couple of days. On the 27th I a most enjoying Wildlife Tour. Unfortunately the weather was against us, very heavy rain, at one point it looked like the day may be a washout. My guest had requested trying to see a woodpecker, not always the easiest birds to find, we were lucky, I know of a few places where we are likely to see one, it paid up trumps, the picker arrived about 5 minutes after we had, it landed on a stump about 3 feet from us, stayed there for about 30 seconds the flew onto a nearby tree where we were able to watch it doing what it does naturally, peck wood. In all we saw over 30 different birds and animals. Not too bad for a wet day.
Cormorant, redshank, curlew, gbb gull, lbb gull, black head gull, herring gull, eider duck, buzzard, swift, swallow, fulmar, pigeon, song thrush, blackbird, oyster catcher, carrion crow, blue tit, great tit, dunnock, chaffinch, Robin, great spotted woodpecker, coot, moorhen, mallard, mute swan, little grebe, starling, house martin, grey heron, pied wagtail, bank vole, red squirrel,
I carried out the hoteliers walking tour of St Andrews on the 28th. The weather was fine, no rain, and going by the response of my guest, the tour was a great success. I hope we now manage to get some bookings coming in now.
