Saturday 26th March

Visiting birder, Alastair Stevenson has sent some more sightings through for the blog... He had seen a male Hen Harrier over Duim Seasg, 11 Pale bellied Brent Geese at Blackrock,  Snipe down at Rubha na Faing at Portnahaven and then a mixed flock of 40 Twite and Linnet down below the car park at Upper Killeyan on the RSPB reserve on the Oa. Today, we saw a couple of Greylags amongst some other Greylags fitted with orange neck collars along the strand at Uiskentuie, but we were in a line of traffic and could not stop, on the way home, they were not there, apologies to Bob Swann.... At Blackrock, there were 2 groups of 4 Brent geese while on the pool beside Carnain, 5 Whoopers were present along with 2 Mute Swans.
