Friday 30th March

Certainly back to wearing another layer of clothing to keep warm today, to think that less than a week ago I cut the grass, several of our Spring migrants have been seen already. On the positive side of it all, at least it has been dry and the ground is drying up and the farmers are getting a chance to get the ploughing done. Earlier in the week, Bob had walked in to Loch Cam and Feur lochans and had seen 1 Goldeneye, 8 Teal, 10 Mallard, 2 Snipe (one of which was chipping), 10 Lapwing, 12 Oystercatcher, several singing Skylarks, Meadow Pipits singing too, 30 Common Gull on nesting territory, 6 Greater Black backed Gull, a "murder" of 20 Ravens. He also had 21 Whoopers flying North up Loch Indaal. Back at his home, Bob had 4 Linnets, the first he has had for some time.
