Sat 26th Dec

Down at Bruichladdich today, Malcolm had 18 Pale bellied Brent Geese, and on the foreshore there were a few Purple Sandpiper and some Turnstone.
This morning, we took a run round the far side of Loch Gorm, there quite a lot of Golden Plover about 140 in all, the largest group had 83 over at Ballinaby, there were also a few Lapwings to be seen but all just in small groups. Also at Ballinaby were a few Redshank and further on a ringtail Hen Harrier flew over the road ahead of us. There were 7 Whooper Swan down Loch Gorm itself, and coming home, at Coull Farm there was a family of 4 Whoopers, 2 adults and their 2 cygnets. We also saw a few Snipe when we were out
