Wednesday 16th February

The weather was a bit kinder to us today, it almost reached double figures at one time, hovering at a balmy 9 degrees. Here at home, this morning there was a mixed flock of Jackdaws and Chough directly over the house, and Margaret had a count of 16 Chough, there certainly were more Jackdaws, but the Chough were what we wanted!
Over towards Loch Skerrols, a visitor had a flock of 100 Chaffinch , and on Loch Skerrols had a mixed group of 77 Whooper and Mute Swan, they were over the far side of the loch and hard to split off. Later on up at Ardnave he counted 50 Twite in one group. He was also commenting about the lack of Stonechats, something which Carl had been speaking about on Monday!
