Tuesday 1st March

As we are in a new month,(and now "Spring") the first thing I usually try to keep you up to date was the rainfall tally for the previous month, and here we had 4.75 inches. Today has not been that great with the wind picking up tonight. The Norfolk birding team had seen some Fulmars in from the sea yesterday...They also saw a Yellowhammer as they went in towards Loch Skerrols. Mark Holling had a Glaucous Gull on Loch Indaal before he headed for home. Carl today, had a Sparrowhawk at Port Charlotte. Mandy had been carrying out one of the goose counts with Malcolm today, at the edge of Bowmore, they also had seen a Sparrowhawk and then further on at the Laundry Loch, 8 Whoopers were present. The Norfolk team had a Glaucous Gull at Machir Bay today. Here at home, late this morning, a Peregrine was after some Rock Doves, the first Peregrine that we have seen for some time now! Tonight the "bird nerds" had their annual meal/get together, usually we hold  it in January, but time flew past and it was delayed until now, 23 folk attended including the 8 visitors from Norfolk birding, a great time enjoyed by all and food was just great as well...
