Friday 2nd February

Yesterday, Bob had seen an Iceland Gull down at Lossit Farm on the Rhinns. Today was the last full day for the Norfolk birding group who have contributed birds for the blog over their stay.  There was hardly any wind to speak of... On Loch Indaal, they saw 8 Long tailed Duck, 25 Scaup, 30 GND, over 20 Slavonian Grebes and a group of 30 R b Merganser. Later on, they saw the Todd's Canada Goose at Kinnabus on the Oa, a Sparrowhawk also on the Oa, 3 Golden Eagles, a ringtail Hen Harrier and a flock of 150 Twite. Finally, at Blackrock, they had a Pied Wagtail, so think that is over 100 species seen through their stay, not bad going considering the weather that they have had...The weather, today,  has been great out here, so much so that that I was busy doing some work out in the garden for most of the day, no need for a jacket at all!!!
