Saturday 8th January

Yesterday Carl had a Merlin over at Gartmain, and had Woodcock flighting into the Merse at Bridgend. Further on at Shorefield at Bruichladdich, there were Snipe in the ditches.
Clive McKay who used work at Gruinart with RSPB tonight became our first contributor to e mail in some sightings from when he was over recently by using the new link. His first sighting was at 2am on the 1st of January, of a Barn Owl on the flats at Gruinart, possibly the first sighting this year! Down at Frenchman's Rocks the next day, Clive had a 1st winter Glaucous Gull. He also had 50 Ravens at Ardnave, 250 Barwits on Loch Gruinart, and also a surprise location for a Song Thrush close to Ardnave Point! Many thanks Clive, keep them coming folks!
