Friday 29th December

The blog and myself have returned...
Coming down out of Inveraray, yesterday afternoon as we headed for the ferry, I counted 8 Grey Herons on the edge of the loch with another dozen or so counted along the shoreline as we headed on to Kennacraig. Here at home, well it has been rather wet, in fact the wettest place in the U.  K.  with the best part of an inch falling in the past 24 hours, with puddles seen out on the Machir as a consequence. The feeders at one point this morning over 21 Goldfinches were present with a couple of Wrens scuttling along in the lee of the stone dyke and then late afternoon, a group of 26 Chough flew over from Rockside heading along towards the Machir  and then flying in to the roost. The odd thing about observing them was that they were flying along at the same altitude all the time, rather than their usual undulating  flight, but they were certainly vocal none the less.
