Friday 6th April

Malcolm and Bob had been out goose counting yesterday on the "Gruinart" run, and had seen the leucistic Bar tailed Godwit along with another 10 normal Bar tailed Godwit up at Traigh Nostaig. Up on Nave Island. there was a flock around 200 Knot, and a solitary Canada Goose which was away from a flock of Barnacle Geese which were there too. The biggest surprise on Nave Island was a Roe Deer, it must have swum over, but how long has it been there? Up at Ardnave Point, a Peregrine was seen, while on Ardnave Loch the Mute Swan was on its' nest. Earlier on at Lyrabus, a Glaucous Gull was there, on RSPB reserve a pair of Hen Harrier were displaying and another male Hen Harrier was displaying over at Killallan. The previous day Bob had been on the Rhinns run and amongst the Greylags at Lossit, there were 2 Pink footed Geese present.
