Wed 13th October

Well, yes another day as predicted on the blog last night, and the first of the Barnies dropped into Loch Gruinart this afternoon. At 3 pm Michal had done a quick headcount and reckoned there was 2,500. I am sure Michal was very relieved as he was due to lead a "Goose walk" starting at 5pm, think he was cutting it a bit fine...
Apart from the Barnies, there were also some Pale bellied Brent, some Greylags and 6 Pink footed Geese to be seen.
George this morning had a count of 80 Scaup on Loch Indaal. Carl had seen 11 Knot and a good number of Redshank just in from Springbank at the head of Loch Indaal. Further on there were 160 Bar tailed Godwit as well as a pair of Gadwall amongst the Wigeon. Earlier, below the lighthouse at Port Charlotte, Carl had seen a female Peregrine sitting on a rocky outcrop.
