female parrot crossbill

  

Sony A200 plus Sigma 150-500

  

Taken while walking around Glenmore forest. The beak on these 2 , particuarly the male made identification fairly easy .This is the commonest crossbill in the area not common or scottish as

the RSPB did to find out what the status of each species is.

 

Just back from another great holiday in Aviemore with my first crossbills, great views of ospreys from my hotel window and a very bad mannered, wild Capercaillie.

 

Some pictures of the Caper will follow shortly.
