Going over to Bowmore today, it was an odd sighting at the top of Loch Indaal that happens occasionally through the winter. That is, that with the tide out, or even partially out there were a lot of Barnacle Geese roosting up through the day, rather than being away grazing on the fields. The most probable reason behind this, is that there was an almost full moon last night and geese had been grazing through the night, so that their bellies were full and no need to go looking for more food!
Speaking of Geese, and Tracey e mailed in the tally for last week's Goose count, which totaled 36,631 Barnies and 6,521 Whitefronts. Thanks again for the figures folks.
