Thursday 18th January

Malcolm had been out on the Ardtalla and the Oa runs for the International Goose count which has been taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. The weather had not been that great with dirty squally showers of hail, sleet and the odd snow shower in the mix as well... Apart from the geese, Malcolm had seen a small Canada Goose at Laphroaig yesterday and a flock of around 40 Golden Plover at Ardtalla, seen on Tuesday and again yesterday... Andrew Kent from SNH sent through the totals of geese counted during the International Goose Count and they came in at 37,487 Barnies, 5,077 Whitefronts and 597 Greylags. Thanks to Andrew and all the team involved.
Today, James had seen a 1st winter glaucous Gull at Blackrock.
