Sunday 22nd June 2008

A wet day at last, the puddles have filled for the first time in ages. I think the grass, the flowers and the birds are all enjoying the ground softening. Not to much to report today due to the rain, other than a female hen Harrier hunting around Loch Gorm. Friday 20th was a good day, a count around the Grunart Flood areas revealed: 14 Lapwing, 37 Mallard, 15 Redshank, 8 Mute Swans, 1 Oystercatcher, 1 Greylag goose, 1 White fronted goose, 1 Moorhen, 3 Shoveler, 5 Grey Herons, 1 Teal. Other reports from the Gruinart area included a Greenshank, a female Shoveler with chicks, Red Throated Diver, several blue tailed damselflies, golden ringed dragonflies, a lizard and a Quail! on the flats.
