  1. Great post and good job on seeing that badger! 😀 Is Donald Trumps golf course affecting birding habitats around you or is that in a different area? Forgive my ignorance if I’m wrong I have only been to Aberdeenshire once.

    • Thanks for your kind words herphunter, the badger was brief but really lovely to see. It’s interesting you bring Donald Trump up. His golf course has been set up near Balmedie, just 10 miles or so north of Aberdeen City, where I’m based. The dune habitat around there is an SSSI – a site of special scientific interest – and thus by its nature Trump’s golf course is damaging the local ecosystem and bird populations. I am not informed about what bird-life is being affected there, but given that the course spans over a few miles at most and much of the coast line north of Aberdeen is the same dune-based habitat I don’t think it will have much effect on specific bird populations. Many of the species which breed in the dunes along that coastline are abundant in that area, breeding in decent numbers around the Murcar/Blackdog golf course, such as Skylark, Meadow Pipit and Sand Martin, just a few miles to the south of Mr Trump’s course. Ultimately I think its the rare plant life in that area that’s suffering as a result of Trump’s savage enterprise, which aren’t in such great supply as the bird species I mentioned.

      • He should go home and stop acting as if he is doing us a favour. I love how on his website he states ‘I have never seen such an unspoiled and dramatic sea side landscape’ so he goes and spoils it by building a massive golf course on it. Thanks for the reply.
