Sunday 3rd February

A Great spotted Woodpecker has been seen on the feeders at the bird table down at Foreland House by Amgela MacLeod. This morning there were some Fulmars in along the front of the crags, something afoot me thinks!! James had been up at Ardnave yesterday. On Ardnave Loch he had 7 Whooper Swans. He also had a count of 34 Chough at Ardnave too, a small flock of 23 Twite was present as well. Down on the shore there was a dead Dogfish. James also saw a Grey Plover, the leucistic Barwit was noted and a 13 Cormorants seen in total. The weather closed in late afternoon, with the crag being lost in the mist and evening ferry being diverted to Port Askaig!!!
