Sunday 6th March

Another great day here folks, but there is a slight edge to the air yet, can't have it all ways... Another sighting/ hearing from earlier this week, Chris Mills had heard a Water Rail calling down at the reed bed down beside the Coastguard's. Peter yesterday had seen a White tailed Eagle up past Ballygrant. On the fields round on the far side (?North side) of Loch Gorm, 80 Skylarks were counted, also present were 12 Ringed Plover. Later on, in the afternoon, Peter saw a Red Grouse up behind Port Charlotte on the moor there. Today, under ideal weather conditions, Mike carried out a count on "inner" Loch Indaal from Port Charlotte round to Gartbreck and on to Laggan Point. his tally came through at 13 GND, 12 RTD, 45  Eider, 2 rafts of Common Scoter totalling 76, 2 Tysties and a Razorbill. James today had Skylark singing on the reserve at Gruinart with the Lapwings displaying there as well.
