Wed 24th Dec

Just to carry on the wintry theme, here is one that James took of the snowman outside his house....
While most of us were winding down for Christmas, James has been busy doing various counts over the past few days. On the floods on Tuesday, which were and still are mostly iced over, the scores on the doors were as follows, 678 Teal, 59 Pintail, 67 Shoveler, 16 Mallard, 29 Greylag, 25 Curlew, 11 Redshank, 3 Lapwing and 1 Black tailed Godwit. Wednesday, on Loch Gruinart, the tally read as follows, 309 Bar tailed Godwit, 444 Dunlin, 1 Otter, 1 Greenshank,3 Grey Plover, 105 Shelduck and 1 Gadwall. Today, an easier day, 2 Merlin, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Hen Harrier and 30 Golden Plover.
Another hopeless plug, yes it is the ForArgyll Awards time again, and the blog has been nominated and are in the final run in, so if you have time look at their web page and cast your vote as you see fit. There is only a week to go until the poll finishes.
Finally may I take this opportunity to wish you all out there, a very Merry Christmas!
