Saturday 19th September
Earlier this morning, the overhead wires out from the house here, were crammed full with a large mixed flock of Goldfinches and Linnets, the largest flock that I have seen here like that, usually we get the visitation from the Starlings.... This morning James, 25 Pale bellied Brents fly in over Loch Gruinart, they circled round and then flew on towards Northern Ireland. Before he caught the ferry today, Jim managed some final birds for us... At Bruichladdich, he counted 85 Ringed Plover, 4 Dunlin and a Grey Wagtail. Loch Gorm held around 2,500 Greylags, At Ballinaby, there were 6 House Martins, at Islay house in the community garden, 2 juv Bullfinches present, while 2 Dabchicks were seen on Loch Skerrols. Thanks Jim for sending through your birds.
