Sat 9th Jan

I have just been watching a program on the television by Bill Bailey, it was filmed down on the Solway, and possibly based at RSPB Mersehead, a lighter look at bird watching through somebody else's eyes. Apart from the main thrust down on the coast, there was also footage taken at Bellymack Farm near Loch Ken where Red Kites are fed daily. We visited it ourselves when we were over on holiday back in November, the main difference was that the day the film crew were there, it looked as if it was nice and sunny, not so with us....
Back on Islay not much birding done, but there was ice on Loch Indaal along the front of Bruichladdich, a sight we do not often get!

We didn't get the Bill Bailey programme in the deep south, but heard it was good. But we also visited the red kites in October. Awesome! Temporarily in the Chilterns we are surrounded by them!. Moving to Wigtown in a couple of weeks.
