Summer Holiday: Birdwatching & Cake

spynie loch

The weather has been so terrible since I got back from Japan that it’s been hard to find a nice weekend to go up and visit my family. I went anyway and managed to pick a mostly sunny patch. Here’s what we got up to.

We spotted quite a lot of birds including a cormorant, woodpecker and unpictured kingfisher.

On the Friday, after a morning of catching Pokemon in the garden, we went birdwatching at Spynie Loch where there’s a hide set up. We had it all to ourselves and managed to spot quite a few different birds including a cormorant, woodpecker and kingfisher.

Angel Bunny at Spynie Loch

It was a bit too damp for a walk sadly but Angel Bunny did find a swing to play on.

Afternoon Tea at Aroma

It’s not a proper holiday without cake and I had this very strawberry-themed afternoon tea at Aroma the next day. That’s cheesecake in an espresso cup, if you were wondering. We certainly were. You should check out their cake photos because it’s always quite a display!

Miffy cookies! I bought these in Japan for @paulinahonig

Even better were the Miffy cookies I bought in Japan that I finally got to hand over to my mum! They’re so cute and pretty tasty too, especially the cocoa one.

Ducklings on Loch Soy

I also got introduced to the tiny ducklings at Loch Soy – squee! More pics next week.
