Thurs 11th March

It was great to see that the group of Whooper Swan are still down on Loch Gorm, all 56 of them, but some friends had a closer look this afternoon and noticed that there is a single Mute Swan along with them, so that only leaves 55 not 56 on the Loch!
I was down at the hide at Gruinart this morning and by chance James was there too taking one of the guided walks with some visitors. They were well pleased with the sighting of the Little Egret which was relatively close to the hide, and James spent some time with showing them the various ducks present, as one of the visitors was not too sure of some ducks id. Also to be seen were Redshank, Greenshank and also a couple of Bar tailed Godwit, so all in all they had a great time!
There was a slight dampness this afternoon, had to put the wipers on while out driving!
