Sat 3rd Jan

James had a walk round Ardnave Point this afternoon, and saw 27 Purple Sandpipers, a Sparrowhawk, and offshore there was a Great Northern Diver, and a Red throated Diver, but no sign of any Snow Buntings. Back on Ardnave Loch, there were 7 Whooper Swans. While feeding the cows this morning, James had a pair of Hen Harriers and also a Sparrowhawk at Gruinart, with the female Hen Harrier having a tussle with the Sparrowhawk, no quarters spared, even the talons were out...

Meanwhile at Bruichladdich, George had been watching several Goldcrest on his feeders for over half an hour this morning. GJ
