Blackbirds nest found today in the garden

I found a Blackbirds nest hidden under a cover, covering a load of logs this morning. Warmth was coming from the eggs... But isn't it a bit late in the year now? (Location: outskirts of Inverness, Highland, Scotland). 

Thanks for looking and any opinions welcome!

Lossiemouth - dog walk and a wee bit of birding.

Early Sunday morning I took a trip out to Lossiemouth to walk the dog. The heathers looking great at the moment. 

On the way back saw lots of Red-breasted Medgansers about taking lots of fish and being chased by a rather large Heron! 

Other birds:
Curlew Sandpiper, Turnstone, Common Ringed Plover, Redshank, Great Black-backed Gull, Common Tern, Dunlin etc.

Not the best photo's below but some taken from the iPhone through the scope... Not easy!
