Friday 29th January

Yesterday Carl had seen a Sparrowhawk in Bridgend wood, and at Conisby beside Bruichladdich Carl had a male Hen Harrier. Also yesterday at Grulinmore, at the Eastern end of Loch Gorm, we had 30  Fieldfare fly past us. Gary had been out with his visiting friends over at Claggain Bay where they saw 11 GND, 7 Cormorant, 3 Shag, 10 Oystercatcher and also 10 Ringed Plover. On their way back along the road, they saw an immature Golden Eagle out from Kildalton Cross, and then finally a male Hen Harrier perched on the ground just out of Port Ellen. Today, we saw 15 Fieldfare over at Coull. Not really a day for bird watching, there was a squall here, early afternoon of just short of 75mph, little wonder that neither the ferry or the plane left the mainland today!!! Even now, early evening and we are getting a bashing with the wind with squally showers in the mix too...
