Saturday 26th February
Sun and showers today, but warm enough to shed the fleece for a while (at least until it began to hail). Martin had been to the hide at Gruinart, reported loads of teal, good numbers of wigeon shoveler, pintail, lapwing and redshank and also a pair of gadwall and 2 greenshank. A male hen harrier was seen around Loch Gorm hunting the shore in the evening light.
