Tues 15th Dec

Here is an image of the Little Egret, taken this afternoon down at Carnain. It was in the water earlier, and with the help of the bins, you could see it disturbing the mud with its' feet, presumably trying to move anything lurking under the surface of the mud.
Today was the first of the 2 day International Goose Counts, no doubt some of those out counting said a few choice words as a couple of low flying RAF jets screamed down past, even the sheep were spooked and ran into a huddle!
Last weeks figures are through from Tracey, in total, there were 39,029 Barnies and 5,623 Whitefronts. Thanks again for the figures.
Malcolm on his way to start his count this morning, had counted 485 Scaup at the head of Loch Indaal, just after Blackrock.
