Veteran Wotsiters and Loch Ness students Con, Mark and Philip correctly inferred a cormorant.  In this case it was a Little Black.


Many of you will have noticed that my offered Wednesday wingtip (over cow paddocks, JWNR) belonged to a harrier, Swamp, male, pale variety. This lacked the contrasting dark tips of a Little Eagle.  It is also a more rangy bird.  To borrow, more or less, a line from the Australian carol ‘Christmas where the Gum Trees Grow’ –


Long wings the harr-ee-er has got,

Neat and chunky is what it’s not.
