Sat 5th - Sun 6th Jan

A Goldcrest was present on a bird table at Ballygrant, it had not been seen there since last April, whether it is the same bird or not, we do not know! Also in the trees, a Tawny Owl was heard. SMcG
Meanwhile some entries from visiting birders, a Iceland Gull was seen over a Bunnahabhain and a Water rail was heard over at RSPB Loch Gruinart reserve. Down at the Oa, a 1st year Golden Eagle was noted, and 3 Hen Harriers were seen at different locations. A Snow Bunting, was up at Ardnave, while around 1,000 Scaup were off Blackrock. Many thanks for your input.
