Nightingale followed by night in ale.
Yesterday saw a lot of action centred around the Auld Haa, where Will found a Thrush Nightingale whilst on census and then in the evening a couple of us popped down to watch the Champions League final over a couple of beers. Thanks to Tommy, Liz and Henry for putting up with us, although as Barcelona fans (from New York!) they had a good night regardless of the company! The Thrush Nightingale was a lot less showy than the Catalan maestros, with many people going away without seeing it and the majority who did only getting flight views and the briefest of glimpses in a bush.
For what it's worth, my prediction for tomorrow is a large raptor of some description...
