Fri 6th Feb

Malcolm had been out Goose counting today on the Oa with Morvern Laurie, and had seen a pair of Eagles flying fairly close together, on closer examination one bird was an adult Golden Eagle while the other was an immature Sea eagle! MAO
Coming back home from Bridgend at lunchtime, we came over the hill past Carrabus and past Borichill Mor dropping down to Gruinart. On the way, we noticed several different groups of Fieldfares along with the odd Redwing. At Carrabus, there were 86 in one field, 27 in another 4 in flight, 6 at Coullabus, 23 at Corsapol and just short of 60 on the flats at Gruinart. Further on, in a grass field at Ballinaby there 70 Curlew, while in the stubble turnips in the next field there was a large mixed flock of Lapwing and Golden Plover together. Finally, further round at Coull Farm there were 85 Golden Plover. MAB
