Tuesday 23rd April

A great image of a Black tailed Godwit taken over at Gruinart last week by Armin Grewe while he was here for Walkislay...  Yesterday, Carl had a count of 150 Barnies down at Port Charlotte. Today the Rochdale birders counted 1300 Barnies at Gruinart, but no sign of the Red breasted Goose! Along at Sunderland, they had 20 Whitefronts. On Loch Indaal, they had 8 Purple Sandpipers and 5 Whimbrel. Today at Gruinart, James reported that there were lots of Willow Warblers on the reserve, including 5 in the scrub up beside Gruinart farm itself.  James had 12 Whimbrel fly over the reserve today and also heard his first Grasshopper Warbler of the year.  Here at home , there were 4 Siskins on the feeders, 2 male and 2 female.
