Lots of buddies today, deer, hare - perhaps there was a message in there somewhere  *smiley-grin*

Cracking day to be on the river  :z16

Nice companion to have.  An osprey flew over me the other day on mid Don, with a squirming brownie of about a pound or so in its talons. Very cool, though I didnít see the actual capture.

A stoat strutting its stuff is probably my rarest sighting so far this season.

Been very lucky this year with Otters, Ospreys, Stoat, Red Squirrels, Kingfishers all making an appearance.
Spotted Red Kites (not around here though), Buzzards, Sparrow Hawk (front garden), Badgers (alive and dead), Roe Deer, Dolphins (in the sea not on the river  *smiley-tongue-out*), and a first was a hare swimming across the Deveron.

Rarest things so far though have been Ian Cameron buying me a coffee and Hamish smile and wave when he drove past me yesterday  *smiley-funny*

Funny you mention pine martins ! I hadn't ever seen one until 2 weeks ago.

However, driving back from having dropped off a pal who was doing the Loch Ness Etape the other weekend one ran accross the road in front of me at about 0530 on the outskirts of inverness.

Then last night at about 930pm one casually walked up my drive and past the living room window !!!

Been on Clywedog yesterday and Wed. Red Kites and an Osprey were my buddies. Plenty of fish too - averaging 3lb (my pal had a ten pounder!). I was straight lining buzzers on the wafting rod.
Clywedog has got to be the most scenic lake in the Principality and although it is stocked it is like wild fishing.

My fishing buddies today in the marshes of Louisiana were pelicans and alligators and millions of horseflies which were attacking us all day. However the redfish and the Drum were a blast on the 888 epic that was built by Sandy
