Thursday 2nd April
I know it is not Thursday, but due to a computer glitch at this end on Thursday evening, well need I say more.....Peter Gill had seen 4 Long tailed Ducks on Loch Indaal, off Uiskentuie, also on Loch Indaal he had seen 5 Pale bellied Brent Geese over at Bowmore. While walking down to Gartbreck along the coastline, a Golden Eagle flew inland in an Easterly direction.. Down at Kintour, he had 2 large Canada Geese on Wednesday, probably the same 2 that Bob and Malcolm had seen . Peter also had seen the Yellowhammers at the keeper's cottage close to Kildalton. On Wednesday, James had spotted the Green winged Teal out from the hide, also present were 2 Greenshank, and 5 Gadwall. Along the flats, 220 Golden Plovers were present. Today (Thursday), Bob had been out goose counting with Catherine and on the "laundry loch" up above Laggan Farm had seen a Goldeneye, 3 large Canada Geese were present there too.... Also out on Laggan Point, they saw a Wheatear.
