Mon 22nd March

I knew I spoke too soon yesterday, talking about the good weather that is, as today we have to report squally showers especially this afternoon.
Our visitors from Orkney were out in Bridgend woods this morning where they heard a Tawny Owl, saw a few groups of 3-4 Siskins while on the River Sorn they had a Dipper and up at The Woolen Mill, they saw 2 Grey wagtail. In the afternoon, a visit to a Distillery was time well spent, out of the rain! Other birders, Dave Pullan and Emma Perry have headed home after a good week and thanks for their input.
Malcolm had been on the Bridgend to Bunnahabhain run today for the Goose count, and had not seen many Whoopers on his travels, only 3 on Loch Finlaggan.
Tracey emailed through the figures from last weeks International Goose count on the 16/17th March, in total the figures were 38,621 Barnacle Geese and 5,745 Greenland Whitefronts. Thanks again for the figures Tracey.
