Wednesday 20th February

Another dry day out here although there is a lazy wind that goes straight through you coming from the East as well, not a warm wind! By the way, the stars last night were tremendous to see, but it is overcast just now, so doubt if there will be any stargazing here later on... Bob today had been out Goose counting with Fiona. On Loch Indaal, with clear skies last night, some of the Barnies were resting up as the tide receded, along with the Barnies was a Pink footed Goose as well as a Canada Goose, hutchinsii sp , possibly the geese that frequent the Mulindry area! Up the Glen road, several mixed flocks of Redwing and Fieldfare were seen and also 5 Mistle Thrushes too. Down close to the radio mast at Cruach, just outside Bowmore a  flock of finches came off the stubble field, in their number there was at least 1 pr of Yellowhammer. At Tallant, 45 Golden Plover were counted and finally down at Gartbreck several groups of Skylarks were seen, the largest flock being 30 in number.
