Mon 16th Feb

The figures are through from Tracey and the team at SNH for last week's International Goose count, and came to 43,669 Barnies and 7,444 Whitefronts. The difference, I am led to believe between the International counts and the "other counts", is that on the International counts, the whole of Islay, totalling 6 separate routes, are all counted on the one day, whereas for the other counts the 6 routes can be done over 2 days. Thanks again folks.
Outside, at present, the sea is making a fair old din, or noise, is it a sign that there is a change in the weather working? We will just have to wait and see......
