Remember me (well, Ben really) telling you the other week about RSPB Balranald? It’s somewhere we always enjoy spending time while we’re here, and a couple of days ago we headed off on the circular walk right round the reserve. Balranald is unusual in terms of RSPB venues as the Society doesn’t actually own ANY of the land - they are there thanks to the local crofters, and the North Uist Estate, being happy to help in their work, specifically in relation to the Corncrakes. No Corncrakes this time round for us, but we did see some other fabulous stuff…..

A wonderful beach bathed in sunshine….


A field full of flowers…

And some trying a more solitary lifestyle...


And birds - lots of them, some fairly common, here at least….

…and some far less so, and not exactly where you’d expect to find them!
