The Great Tit yesterday could have been right, today the temperature got up to double figures, and even the first of the snowdrops are just about to burst their buds down in the woods here at home, must remember to check Bridgend Woods the next time we are going that way.
Yesterday, there were 53 Lapwings round at Ballinaby, along with 35 Golden Plover and 8 Ringed Plover. On the other side of the road were 2 lots of Mallards totalling 20 in all, and further down the field there was a Peregrine attempting a stoop on some ducks but with no joy. Further on round the loch and there was a sighting of a male Hen Harrier, quite close to us.
In the fields down beside Lossit Farm today there was a group of around 100 Starling and mixed through them were 30 Fieldfare and around 20 Redwing.
