Sun 8th Feb

An image sent in by Michal of a Robin flying in to defend it's feeding patch from a Pied Wagtail. I will include the next image tomorrow night, so watch this space!
Michal had been up at Ardnave again looking for any sign of the large numbers of Purple Sandpiper which he had seen last weekend, but to no avail, only 2 in total yesterday! But, he managed to see 25 Redpoll, 70 Oystercatcher on Nave Island itself, 1 Peregrine and also 1 Sanderling.
Back here at home, we heard the Woodpecker drumming on a tree, saw a female Hen harrier, and also the return of a few Fulmars this morning, perhaps an indication of a small storm later on, as there were not many of them!
