Wed 8th Oct

Our friends from Cheshire saw the Snow Bunting over at Saligo this morning, just after spotting a female Merlin. On the fields at Ballinaby, amongst the Lapwing, they also had 3 Golden Plover. Down at Bruichladdich, or on Loch Indaal to more precise, they had a Red-throated Diver, was it possibly the same bird that George had a few days ago? At the end of their day they seen 60 different species in all.
Other visitors over on holiday also had seen the Snow Bunting, but had seen 3 Golden Eagle later on.
The weather today has been good, with only the odd rogue shower of rain for a few minutes. As I write, the stars are shining brightly outside, no light pollution to spoil it all!
