Catherine sent me through a count of the birds on Loch Gruinart that she had carried out the other day. 71 Shelduck, 200 Wigeon, 20 Mallard, 1 Goldeneye, 269 Oystercatcher, 4 Ringed Plover, 45 Golden Plover, 9 Lapwing, 3 Knot, 23 Sanderling, 561 Dunlin, 197 Bar tailed Godwit, 217 Curlew, 47 Redshank, 16 Turnstone, 106 Common Gulls, 29 Herring Gulls and 3 Greater black backed Gulls. Thanks Catherine for the figures.
Back here at home, and this morning there were 25 Fieldfare in the trees in the wood for a few moments before they flew off. Might have spoken too quickly yesterday, as today it was rather miserable with dirty showers for most of the afternoon!
