Monday 23rd January

Some sightings through from yesterday... Bob and his son Ivan had a couple of Goldeneye over at Bun an Uillt. From the old hide at Gruinart, they saw the drake Green winged Teal amongst the other Teal present. There were also 2 R B Merganser as well as 8 Greenshank. Up from the "platform", where the original hide once stood, a Goldcrest was seen. At Bruichladdich, they saw 6 Purple Sandpiper. Gary yesterday had been down at the Lily Loch where he had 7 Heron, 2 Goldeneye and also a total of 24 Mallard.
