Wednesday 23rd March

This morning, Bob and myself went over to the Oa reserve to give the team there a help with the birds seen along the coastline there and also a count of  any wild goats seen on our walk. Bob and myself did the stretch from Port nan Gallan (below Upper Killeyan) round past the American monument and along the coast to Lower Killeyan, so here are birds we saw...2 Chough, 7 Hooded Crows, 9 Raven, 6 Rock Dove, 187 Fulmar, 9 Oystercatcher, 35 Herring Gull, 8 GBB Gull, 23 Gannets, 4 Skylark, 6 Rock Pipit and 4 Meadow Pipit. We also counted 3 groups of goats, tallying 57 in all... Dave saw a Water Rail on his stretch.  Possibly it is just as well we carried the survey out today, as the weather is to go downhill with some rain forecast!!!
