Friday 1st February

That's January past now, the days are stretching out a little, both in the morning and in the evening, especially noticable here this evening! The rainfall for January was just a little more than January 2012, with the tally this year coming through at 7.75", most of it falling within the last week, or so it seemed! Forgot to mention last night that while I was at Loch Skerrols yesterday afternoon, nothing much really to report apart from 2 Mute Swan, and just as I was about to leave a Heron flew past and quickly followed by some more, in the end, 8 Herons flew past in all. They kept on going past Octuvullin. Here at home today, mid morning the Fulmars were in, 10 in total and mid afternoon they were all gone, could we be in for some more stormy weather come the start of the week? Bob yesterday had a Sea Eagle up the Glen road between Mulindry and Ballygrant. He also commented on seeing quite a few Woodcock around, and also some small flocks of Redwing and Fieldfare too.
