Wednesday 3rd December
Yesterday Bob had been out goose counting on the Gruinart patch, up at Ardnave, he had seen a Merlin there as well as a pair of Golden Eagles. Over on Nave Island, a White tailed Sea Eagle was present eating away. Could it have possibly have been devouring a young seal pup or even a goose??? Today at the top of Loch Indaal on the mudflats, Bob spotted another White tailed Sea Eagle while down at Claddach at Portnahaven he saw a male Hen Harrier. Margaret had the ringtail Hen Harrier fly past over the garden (again!) and later on she counted 10 Whoopers as they flew out to the sea and South towards Ireland, quite impressive the colour of the Swans against the grey skies!!!
