Wednesday 20th December
Louise had seen 6 Pale bellied Brent Geese out in the Glebe at the Manse at Craighouse over on Jura this morning. She also has ben having a count of 80 Geese regularly, coming in from over at Inver, again on Jura, on a regular basis. Not sure as to the species, ? Barnies as Lou forgot to say on her e mail to me!! This afternoon, she saw an juvenile Glaucous Gull North Loch Gorm. James had been out again helping with the International Goose. He was saying that it was rather foggy this morning, making counting the geese a bit of a problem...The count for the Barnies came to 10,500 while his tally for the Whitefronts was 700. James also saw a Sparrowhawk at Gruinart, a Hen Harrier at Craigens and also Merlin up at Ardnave.
