Wed 13th Jan

Peter Roberts has had some friends over staying with him. While they were out the other day, over at Bunnahabhain, they saw the adult Iceland Gull, and coming back from there they had 2 Golden Eagles as well as 2 White tailed Sea Eagles. They had also gone down on to The Oa and had seen another Golden Eagle as well as a Peregrine.
Malcolm had been out on the Rhinns run of the Goose count yesterday. At Craigfad, there was a Pink footed Goose in amongst 150 Greylags, on the foreshore at Bruichladdich there were 18 Pale bellied Brent Geese, and up at Coultorsay there were 2 Brent Geese in amongst the Barnacle Geese. Malcolm commented that usually Brent Geese that get in with a field of Barnies remain with them.
