    Took a trip to Muir of Dinnet nature reserve on Saturday, took a wrong turn and ended up to the blue trail, which goes round the whole of Loch Kinord (over 6k). Poor dog was knackered afterwards. Saw lots and lots of toads among other birds. Got my first ever lapwing, which was really hard to follow in the air as their flight pattern is so erratic.

    Haha thanks! I should put warning on it, I did feel bad sticking my lens in their faces while they were *ahem* busy.

    No need for nondisclosure agreements from those toads. You have proof!
