Cape Wrath LDW prep
Aired out the big tent for this trek in a couple of weeks with an extended walk (30km) and a summit camp on a remote Graham. Fabulous weather on the walk in, glorious sunrise for about 4 minutes and a drizzly walk out. Plenty of birdlife and Im getting better at recognizing them now. RSPB’s bird id is my new friend. The Common Sandpiper, Willow Warbler and the Lesser Redpoll were amongst the more obscure ones although I have seen the Sandpiper on several other occasions without knowing what it was. Also a pair of herons, unusual to see as they are quite solitary birds. Must be a breeding pair.
