Sunday 16th September

Yesterday, Bob saw his second Goldcrest of this Autumn in his garden. Later on, in the adjoining field, he saw a Kestrel, the first that he has seen there for 4 years...
James was up for a natter and a cuppa this afternoon.. Back on Thursday, 21 Pale bellied Brent flew over the reserve and onwards. On Friday he counted a further 29 fly onwards .... Today on the reserve at Gruinart, James had 2 Goldcrest and also 4 Blackwits.
Up here, while having the famous cuppa with James, a female Sparrowhawk came and landed just outside the window, less than 20 feet away, no need for the bins, but the camera might have been handy ...
Talking about Geese starting to be seen, I read this morning that there had been 30 Barnies counted on Fair Isle yesterday..Svalbard geese rather than the ones that come down from Greenland to here !!!
