Sunday 5th February

On Friday, James had been up at Ardnave and had seen the leucistic Bar tailed Godwit, 8 Grey Plover, 2 Purple Sandpiper, 99 Golden Plover and 125 Twite. Last night on his way over to Kilchoman from Grainel, James had a Barn Owl and also 3 Woodcock. This morning there were 12 Fulmars in at the crag, and along the front of the cottages at lunchtime there was a dead Hare. It was still warm, but very thin and no sign of any attack or predation, it was just there, quite peaceful. I wonder whether it was the "dozy" Hare that I had seen in the car lights on Friday evening which seemed unsure of its' surroundings.
