Wed 29th Sept

Another month almost in, time flies, and yes the nights are drawing in too. Funny that you do not often hear about it being longer dark in the morning.....
I heard last night that there was a reported sighting of a Red Grouse up the back of Port Charlotte. Also yesterday, Louise had seen a couple of Fieldfare over on Jura, close to Camas an Staca down on Ardfin estate.
Peter had counted 800 Greylag and 2 Barnies on the top of Loch Indaal this afternoon. He had a look for the Kingfisher on the Sorn, but no joy! This evening, again on Loch Indaal, just out from the lighthouse at Port Charlotte was a large raft of Greylags, and another slightly smaller raft out from Port Charlotte itself.
On our way going out this evening, we saw a Sparrowhawk perched on a fence post on the roadside, but no Owls on the way home!
