Saturday 22nd December

Another cracker of a day, like the rest of the country, it has been wet for most of the day, just as well we live up a hill... Tom and Jo are back over for a few days to visit family for Christmas. Yesterday afternoon they had a count of 55 Whitefronts at Claggan, just past Blackrock, close to the shore on Loch Indaal, they counted 144 Scaup. Along at "smelly corner" 135 Barwits and 50 Dunlin were present. On Loch Indaal from Bowmore, they had 9 Pale bellied Brent Geese, 27 Common Scoter, 10 Goldeneye, 1 Smew, 4 GND and a Slavonian Grebe
