Monday 12th September

A very windy start to the day, then at lunch time the wind dropped and the rain came on- with a few midges for good measure.
Some records from yesterday: Jim had a female Sparrowhawk at Kilchiaran, a Peregrine at Bridgend merse, 18 Bar Tailed Godwits, 72 Lapwing, 2 Whooper Swans on Gruinart Flats, 14 Pale Bellied Brents on Loch Gruinart and 65 Tufted Ducks, 1 Greater Scaup and 7 Teal on Loch Gorm.
Some records from Gary: on Friday an Osprey on Loch Indaal nr. Whin Park entrance and on Saturday Pale Bellied Brent geese still at Kilnaughton and a Golden Eagle at Ballimartin.
The only record for today was a Sparrowhawk in my garden at Gruinart.
