Sep 20th by Ian under Bird Watching

Swallows and martins usually overlap the geese by a week or two here in Tayside, I have been expecting geese since Wednesday 15th, due to the favourable winds. It wasn't until the 18th I heard and saw a small flock of greylag geese flying over the house. Big skeins to follow, swallows and martins are still here but patchy, no longer lined up on the wires but feeding and moving south. I now look forward to crisp autumn days at Loch Leven, where I line up my imaginary gun to real cormorants, wonder what they taste like? Can't be worse than Guga, see below, but with modern culinary we could set it up as Loch Leven pie, problem is Guga is subsistence and traditional, besides duck and geese taste (I think) much better. There is also the law on the cormorants side. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/this-britain/poet-reveals-secrets-of-brutal-guga-hunters-972771.html
