After lunch I gave Tootlepedal a call to see if he was available for an excursion with the cameras to which he was. We thought we'd give the moorland feeder a quick visit but before that I said I needed to go up Whita Hill to retrieve a glove that I had dropped when I was up the previous night taking moonscapes. When we arrived we met my friend Kenny Bell and he said the glove had been placed on the information board.

After taking some interesting pictures including ones of moor burning we made our way to the feeder station.

Looking at this birds beak I have a strong suspicion it is a nuthatch
The rest of the afternoon was spent on the riverside.
In the evening I went to Selkirk with Corrie Graham and Melanie Horne where we had photos entered in a highly contested annual photo competition which is hosted by Selkirk camera club. This involves around six camera clubs from the Scottish borders. We had a modest but encouraging success Sarah Wilson from our club picked up second in th landscapes section and I got a highly commended in the peoples section.
