Our last bird programme of the year is timed to catch the autumn arrivals, which by the time of your arrival will be in full swing, with a huge diversity stopping by, some to stay for the winter. Others, like the hundreds of whooper swans we see, will only refuel for a few weeks before heading south. We have said goodbye to our summer migrants, only to be replaced by hundreds of fieldfare, redwings, goldcrests and robins.
Arriving in their masses from the Arctic and filling our shorelines are sea duck, divers, geese and waders. Young golden eagles practice flying in the glens, whilst juvenile white-tailed sea eagles roam widely, turning up anywhere, including Aigas.
