Sun 2nd Aug

Yesterday, was changeover day again with the cottages and hence no time to do any birding, I have to work sometimes!
The rainfall for July here was 3.75", and the total for the year so far is 2.5" more than last year. I get the impression that although the rainfall has certainly been greater, I do not have the feeling that it has not been that bad a summer, and have great tan to prove it. Possibly a lot of the rain has fallen through the night.
There are a lot of young birds on the wing, especially noticeable on the road round the loch tonight were Meadow Pipits and also Pied Wagtails. Over at Ballinaby the count of Greylags was 151, and most of them were on a grass field that was recently sown, a worrying sign for the farmer.
