Sunday 27th February
Some really good clear spring weather, in between the heavy hail showers. Many birds are starting to sing now, song thushes, blackbirds, robins and today the ravens at Gruinart were lining the nest. Peter reported a group of 12 crossbills at Finlaggan house, the group included adult males, females and young birds, feeding on insects taken from the mosses and lichens. In the Ballygrant area, Peter also saw 2 white tailed eagles, one an adult with a yellow tag on the right wing, the other a young bird.
