Saturday 19th January

The weather today is not much warmer than yesterday, but the wind has dropped (?no wind chill...) and better still, no snow! James had some birds seen at Gruinart today,  4 Woodcock, male Hen Harrier, 1 Peregrine, 1 Sparrowhawk along at Woodside, 28 Fieldfare, 5 Mistle Thrush and also 6 Whooper Swans on the floods. This morning down close to Sunderland, I had a Merlin and this afternoon, a Sparrowhawk perched on top of the gate to the cairn of the Battle at Gruinart. Thanks to Michal and to James for writing the blog while I was away in Glasgow, it was not much warmer there, and better still the ferry was sailing when we arrived at Kennacraig, as earlier ferries had been cancelled.
