📖 Pitfour Lake ⛅ 10C ~ Wind ↗WSW@16mph 16/11/20

PITFOUR LAKE ~ MINTLAW

Pitfour Lake, Mintlaw Aberdeenshire ~ NJ 9751 2885

This was my first visit to Pitfour Lake, primarily for a Greater Scaup which has been on-site for several days now.


1st-Winter Greater Scaup

Although this is not a designated birding site it was a pleasant lakeside walk in open countryside and your visit can also be linked with a walk through Aden Country Park. I managed to locate the bird at the top end of the lake near the fishing pontoons. 

One of three Goldeneye on the lake today.

During my short visit three Goldeneye, 2 Crossbill in the conifers, three Little Grebe and seven Goosander were also noted.
