Tuesday 1st January

A quiet time here last night, well behaved folk out living on the sticks....Pete Clement had gone over to Bunnahabhain this morning and had seen the adult Iceland Gull, if it is the same bird, it's been a regular there for a good number of years now. Out on the Sound of Islay, Pete had 4 GND, a Black throated Diver and a Black Guillemot in winter plumage. Inland, he had a male Hen Harrier out quartering its patch of ground. Down at Nerabus, Pete had a Pink footed Goose amongst the Barnies present. Back here at home in amongst the birds at the feeders, the other day was a Chaffinch with a BTO ring on its' leg, wonder if it was one of the birds that Euan caught and rung back in July?
