Sun 21st Feb

Another cracking image sent in by our friends who are over on holiday for a few days. This time of a Golden Plover, and please note the snow on the ground, something which we do not normally get over here! As well as the Golden Plover they had also seen 120 Lapwing at Ballygrant. At Bunnahabhain, they saw 3 groups of Bullfinch on the heather eating the seed heads, there were 4 in one small group, 10 in another and 15 in the final group. This group had 6 males and 9 females in it.
Other visitors reported in seeing 20 Purple Sandpiper up at Ardnave this afternoon.
Back here at home, there were 10 Blackbirds on the food on the ground today, while earlier on a female Hen Harrier was seen along the bottom of the crag.
