Sun 4th Jan

This spell of drier weather continues, and this was the sunset from the East end of Loch Gorm looking out towards the Coastguard cottages and further on to the Machir Bay. The outline of Donegal was quite clear today.
While out and about, I saw 3 separate groups of Greylag Geese, but none with more than 30 birds in total. There were quite a few thousand Barnacle Geese at Rockside along with some Whitefronts too. Down at Bruichladdich there were some Purple Sandpiper, and a few Ringed Plover and Turnstone too. There were some Pale bellied Brent, on the top side of Bruichladdich. On the Bridgend side of Blackrock, there was a large raft of Scaup present on Loch Indaal, but quite close to the shore.
