Saturday 10th February

Yesterday, Gary had seen a Golden Eagle up at Ardnahoe, and then shortly afterwards, he had a male Hen Harrier flying over the bay at Bunnahabhain. Today, Bob and Distillery Dave had spent some time down at the old hide at Gruinart. A great time was had, top bird was a drake Ring necked Duck, out to the left of the hide. They also had seen 4 Greenshank, 5 R b Merganser and counted 38 Pintail. There was a large flock of Golden Plover seen in the air, a few other waders with them. Other returning birders from Rochdale are back for another fix, they had seen  a Sparrowhawk over at Avonvoggie, 2 Glaucous Gulls at Corsapol, the Iceland Gull in the mud at Ballinaby and also a large female Peregrine sitting on top of a fence post close to the road at Coull.
