Wed 6th October

This Buzzard was sitting on a fence post this afternoon, down below the Gaelic College. What I had really stopped to look at was the rock out in front of the College. The tide was in, so there was not really much of the rock showing, but there were plenty birds on it! Knot, Turnstone, Bar tailed Godwit, Oystercatcher, Herring Gull and a couple of Pale bellied Brent Geese too! On Loch Indaal itself were a few ducks, Mallard, Eider, Teal and Wigeon. When we left and just before Gartmain, a Sparrowhawk flew past us on the shore side of the road, but it never bothered with the ducks.
