Tuesday 19th February

A shortened edition tonight folks as for some reason my previous, longer edition did not wish to be published, see theses gremlins... Bob yesterday had a Sparrowhawk in his garden, a Kestrel later on just outside his garden,several Buzzards seen out on the wing. Out on the Rhinns, Bob had both male and female Hen Harrier and a Short eared Owl. The Hampshire birders had Pied Wagtail at Port Ellen and later on down on the Oa had seen 25 Fieldfare, 30 Twite and a ringtail Hen Harrier. Today down at Bruichladdich, they had 2 Ringed Plover, another Pied Wagtail, Rock Pipits all along the shore with a pr of Red breasted Merganser offshore. At the flats at Gruinart they had a possible Marsh Harrier and finally a Merlin over on the Glen road out of Ballygrant. Birders from Cambridge had seen 2 Golden Eagles, one coming out over the hill behind Sunderland with the other over towards Sanaigmore. Also close to Sanaigmore they had 40 Ravens while near to Garra Eollabus 30 Chough were seen.
