Mon 25th Jan

Apologies for not putting any entries on for the last couple of nights, Saturday I forgot to do it, and last night was spent doing other things and the evening ran away from me, no excuse really.....
The other day coming back from Bowmore, the tide was good and there was a lot about on the foreshore, there were 2 separate groups of Bar tailed Godwits close to Gartmain both with over 30 birds each, a few Redshank, a few Ringed Plover, some Oystercatcher and Curlew. Round at "smelly corner" there were some Pintail along with Mallard, Wigeon as well as some Shelduck and Teal. It was great to see both the waders and Duck out and about after the frosts. Where have the geese been? Lately, there have been large flocks both next door at Rockside, but also along at Sunderland Farm too.
