And Loch Eilean in the afternoon, was our first and only sighting of Crested tit, 2 birds called and one showed nicely just above head level on the clockwise 'blue' path by the small stream bridge about half a mile from the carpark. By what we heard over the week a canny few other folk were struggling also to get onto these belters.
We also managed 3 Ravens (all in the cottage area), 3 Hooded crows (I was surprised not to see more) from the cottage flying thro-, Probably about 15 Red Kites, One female Hen harrier whilst driving along a busy road and I couldn't stop!, 2 Crossbills at Loch Eilean landed briefly before doing off, along with all the usual type suspects expected.
What a cracking week we had for our first visit to this area, we stayed in a Cottage at Farr just about 10 minutes from Loch Ruthven so obviously this became a regular site just to drop into and enjoy.
Many thanks again to the folk who helped me out on this visit with their great advice.
