Saturday 2nd April

Quite a lot of rain through the night, the burn was running big this morning, as I write this evening, there has been 0.75" of rain since yesterday morning...

Going round Loch Gorm this evening, we had several pairs of Curlews, 3 pairs of Redshank, numerous Lapwing, 22 Golden Plover at Ballinaby, several Ringed Plover, 12 Pied Wagtail also at Ballinaby, Barnies, Whitefronts, Greylags, Meadow Pipits, Hooded Crows, Rock Doves, 3 pairs of Mallard, Chough, Jackdaw, in fact a good cross section was seen without us really going out of our way to find them. We have 2 young brothers along with their parents in one of the cottages this week and the boys are on the lookout for birds when they are here. I was well impressed as the elder brother even knew what a Chough looked like.
