Sat 12th Dec

Apologies for not putting an entry on last night, but it was one of those days yesterday with the time running away from me.
James noted the return of the Shelduck yesterday, with 111 being counted on Loch Gruinart itself, he also had 9 Black tailed Godwit and a Peregrine Falcon. On the floods there was a Moorhen and 2 Whooper Swan. From his house at Grainel, in the flock of Barnacle Geese was the Canada Goose, hutchinsii again.
This morning, the volunteers had seen a Golden Eagle at James' road end. Also this morning, we had a Sparrowhawk on top of a fence post round towards Saligo, and here at home there was a large flock of Rock Doves on the wing around 50+ in number. Later on, there was a Peregrine having bit of "fun" with the same Rock Doves, but not with any success!
