Tues 19th Jan

This image was taken by Keith Betton at the weekend. He took it over at Port Askaig, and the Iceland Gull itself appears to be either up at Bunnahabhain or down at the "Port". Keith was over birding and was fortunate to see the Gyr Falcon as well. Thanks for your image, Keith.
Louise had seen the Little Egret this morning, down at Bridgend. It flew overhead as she was putting fuel in her car, so it is still with us! Louise also had a few Purple Sandpipers on Lowlandman's Bay on Jura yesterday.
Tracey emailed the figures through for the last 2 Goose Counts, the first one carried out on the 7-8th of January tallied out at 32,783 Barnies and 5,517 Whitefronts, while the count on 11-12th January was 37,092 and 6,434. This week there is an International count being carried out, so it will be interesting to see the figures from it. Once again, thanks to Tracey and the team for the stats.
