Thursday 21st February

Another great day with the weather out here today although as I write this entry around 10 pm it is a bit on the cool side outside at present, cold for here that is! Our birders on their last day had seen a ringtail Hen Harrier down close to where they have been staying at Carnain. On Loch Indaal, they had seen Scaup, Common Scoter, Eider Duck and Red breasted Merganser, waders included Ringed Plover and Dunlin. Close their cottage, Dunnock, Song Thrush, Blackbird and Robin were present. With the weather being that bit colder, the bird feeders have been really busy yesterday and today compared with the other day when temperature was a bit warmer.Many thanks for your sightings folks which you have shared with us. Down at Gartbreck other visitors today had seen the Glaucous Gull.
