Monday 11th February

Returning birders from Hampshire yesterday had seen a couple of Bullfinches in the bushes on the roadside down close to Whinpark, later on they had some Yellowhammers up towards Knockdon. Today they had seen a Reed Bunting down at the reed bed at the Coastguard Houses. Today, Mary had seen her first Gannet for some time, she saw it flying past Port Wemyss going towards the Orsay lighthouse. In Port Wemyss itself there were 2 Goldfinches on a feeder outside one of the houses. Coming out of the village there was a ringtail Hen Harrier out quartering its' patch. Finally up towards Bridgend, there was a young White tailed Eagle.
