Saturday 28th January

Not a lot to report tonight, but there were 43 Lapwing present, on the water's edge at Gartmain late morning, a place that I was not aware of them being seen there before. Round at Blackrock, where the Brent Geese are often seen, there were 73 Scaup counted by Dave Wood. Here at home I was amazed at the number of geese present on the reseeds early afternoon, there were 534 Barnies and 101 Whitefronts.  I cheated a bit, in the sense that I took some images and then counted the geese on the computer screen, a lot easier and a bit warmer than sitting around in the van... Might even try the same method tomorrow when carrying out the "Big garden birdwatch".
