Tues 10th Feb

The first of the Spring migrants arrived on Saturday, humans, not birds, as that was our first visitors arriving in our cottages! They had been up for a walk round Ardnave Point in the bitter wind yesterday, and had seen 25 Chough and a flock of 30 Snow Bunting as well as a few Purple Sandpiper.
Louise Gregory, now with RSPB, had 120 Fieldfare at Uiskentuie and 130 Golden Plover down on the Oa. Back home on Jura, Louise had 2 Canada Geese while Gordon her other half had seen several Shelduck on Loch Tarbert.
