Thursday 6th January

A bit cooler over here today, with the odd snow shower thrown in for good measure, the tops of the hills have got their winter caps on again!
The other day Bob had counted 12 Goldeneye down in the harbour in Bowmore. Today, while he was out Goose counting, Malcolm had a flock of over 80 Fieldfares over beside Balole which is up behind Scarrabus. We had 17 flying off from the fir trees down below Rock Mountain this morning, and a further 4 down at Rockside this afternoon. We saw a male Hen Harrier today down beside Loch Gorm and back at home on the bird table were 2 Starlings! The Hen Harrier was our first since our return from our holidays a fortnight ago.
