Tuesday 30th July

A bit of a latish entry tonight as I have been out at the Bird nerds monthly meeting, tonight we were out at Gartbreck down below Bowmore on Loch Indaal. At the start we had some rain then it brightened up a beautiful rainbow then the sun was out for the rest of our time there. We had over 170 Dunlin, 2 Red breasted Merganser, 3 Eider, 3 Sandwich Tern, 1 Arctic Tern, 1 Heron, ringtail Hen Harrier, male Hen Harrier later on, 1 GND, Ringed Plover, Redshank, 35 Greylag. The Greylag will no doubt be seen more often now as the young are starting to fly, ratyher than lurking around in the rushes! The other positive aspect about tonight was that there were no midges out, which could have spoilt our time out!
