Wednesday 21st February

Gary yesterday had been out with a client and had a White tailed Eagle up behind Ballygrant and then later on they had seen 9 Crossbill at Finlaggan. Today, Gary and Lesley had carried out the WeBs count from Bowmore down to Gartbreck, Bob's former patch. Their top birds were 2 Grey Plover, 8 Knot, 3 Glaucous Gull and an Iceland Gull. The Hampshire birders are still here , but have had no internet connections at all for the past 2 weeks.. Up at Loch Cam, a Reed Bunting and also a Grey Wagtail were seen while down at Bowmore,  Eider, Common Scoter and Lapwing were present. The Rochdale birders had seen 10 Purple Sandpipers in total down at Bruichladdich this morning, and were commenting on seeing 5 White tailed Eagles over the past 3 days!! Bob had a Reed Bunting in  his garden today. Here at home, a Siskin was at the feeders with 2 Greenfinch seen on the nut feeders around midday, and a count of 38 Chough going in to the roost just as the light was starting to fail.
