Thurs 2nd April

An image of Curlews over at Gruinart, taken at the weekend by Michal.
Another good, warm day over here although there is still an edge to the wind. At Loch Skerrols, I had my first Peacock butterfly of the year, but not much on the Loch itself, birdwise!
The Gyr Falcon had been seen earlier this evening, near to the phone box on the other side of Loch Gorm. Was it about to phone a friend, to get directions home, or has its' gps gone horribly wrong?
Down at Loch Indaal, there were 61 Pale bellied Brent Geese, with James commenting that he had noticed small groups moving through. He also felt that a few of our Geese have flown on, so it will be interesting to see the figures for this week's Goose counts.
