Friday 19th June

This evening , well should I really say this, I am not so sure... the dreaded midges made an appearance, rather muggy outside with hardly any wind, ideal for the little blighters... This morning I went with Bob and David Formby and walked down the River Sorn from The Woollen Mill down to below Bridgend where the River enters Loch Indaal. We felt that were not so many birds around, no Dippers for sure, not so many Blackcaps or Willow Warblers, but still a good selection seen and heard. So here we go with our birds... 1 Heron, 3 Mallard, 1 Buzzard, 12 Common Gull, 20 Herring Gull, 1 LBB Gull, 1 GBB Gull, 4 Rock Dove, 25 Wood Pigeon, 1 Sand Martin, 1 House Martin, 12 Swallow, 2 Pied Wagtail, 1 Grey Wagtail, 10 Wren, 1 Dunnock, 8 Robin, 3 Song Thrush, 7 Blackbird, 13 Willow Warbler, 15 Blackcap, 1 Sedge Warbler, 9 Goldcrest (including family of 4), 2 Spotted Flycatcher, 4 Blue Tit, 6 Great Tit, 1 Coal Tit, 1 Treecreeper, 50 Jackdaw, 200 Rook, 4 Starling, 10 Chaffinch, 12 Goldfinch, 2 Bullfinch, 1 Greenfinch and a Siskin. While we were away, Margaret counted 14 Goldfinch on the nyger feeders here at home....
