Hello folks. Just wanted to bid you all a fond farewell as today is my last day at Loch Garten. It has been an absolute pleasure working here this season and I am taking with me, many great memories. There is something special about Abernethy forest and I feel very lucky to have lived and worked in such a beautiful place.
The opsrey season has been totally enthralling. EJ and Odin are remarkable birds and I really admire and respect them. I hope that Caledonia and Alba make it safley to west Africa and come back to Scotland in due course. I will, of course, be following them on Google Earth.
The next step for me is a short holiday and then back to work for the RSPB in Aberdeen. Definitely near-by enough for me to visit the Centre next season..!!
Thank you all for your support this season and enjoy watching the birds for the rest of the time they're here.........until next year!
Mairi, thanks for your report. All the best and glad you enjoyed your stay at the Centre. I note that you are working for the RSPB in Aberdeen. Enjoy your holiday.
Oh, hello and bye MAIRI - thanks for saying 'Goodbye' to us. So glad you've had a great season at LG and good luck where you are going.
Glad you have enjoyed your stay at LG. Enjoy your holiday and best wishes for the future!
Thanks for thinking of us, Mairi, hope you have a lovely holiday and get back to the grindstone thoroughly refreshed ;-)
So pleased to read that you enjoyed your time at LG. How many people are lucky enough to really enjoy their work ! Best wishes and have a great holiday.
Hi and bye Mairi. I had a great time at LG on the 11th of August. Its a wonderful place :-) I'm delighted you had a great season, and I hope you have a nice holiday.
Goodbye Mairi. Do have a great holiday. Somewhere dry and sunny, I hope. Very best wishes for the future.
Thank you,Mairi. Loch Garten is a wonderful place. Have a great holiday.
Bye Mairi and good luck in Aberdeen. It was great to meet you earlier this year. Enjoy your break.
Mairi - It has always been a pleasure talking to you on my many visits to the centre this year. Last saturday we discussed your new position in Aberdeen and that we may bump into each other - but I also told you I would also be moving on to Dunblane.
Have a great break and I wish you all the best in your new position and am sure you will serve the Aberdeenshire area RSPB with the enthusiasm you have shown at Loch Garten this year.
All the very best, Mairi - glad you enjoyed your time at the centre. Thank you for your input to the blog during your stay and good luck for the future :-)
A perfect morning for migration and both Caledonia and Alba have had large fish delivered to them by EJ. All the signs sem right.
Enjoy your new job Mairi.
Bye and thanks Mairi, hope all goes well for you.
Today seems a better day for migration. Still a bit blustery but nothing like it was yesterday with on off rain and strong winds.
Bye Mairi, best wishes for the future & have a great holiday (in the sun, I hope).
Goodbye Mairi and hope you have a great holiday, good luck in all you do.
