Fri 29th Jan

Coming out of Bowmore this morning and looking out onto Loch Indaal we saw a small group of Pale bellied Brent Geese close to the shore, just past where Islay Farmers once traded from. Further on, at Blackrock, and there was a larger group, about 20 geese, again at the water's edge.
At Sunderland Farm, there were a couple of Golden Eagle, one soared past us and out over the hill, while the other bird decided to get the geese up in the air, before it too headed out to the hill. It was rather cool today to be birdwatching, and we had a few dirty showers of both hail and snow this morning.
