Wednesday 12th September

Barnacle geese.
Yep - 9 barnies arrived and landed on the Gruinart Flats, with a group of greylags. It was a sunny, but cold day, with the wind blowing a bit of north to the westerly, giving an autumnal feel.
Other birds included 10 red breasted mergansers in a tight flock and a red throated diver on Loch Indaal, and back at Gruinart a sparrowhawk chasing the big flocks of linnets and twite.
