Gull, 2 BH Gull, 92 Oystercatcher, 55 Curlew, 121 Barwits, 8 Redshank, 60 Dunlin, 2 Blackwits, 12 Ringed Plover, 1 Snipe and 5 Heron. A high count for the Greylags! Later on over at Gortan, Bob had 130 Dunlin, 65 Ringed Plover and 10 Turnstone. Today, Bob had gone down to the Oa along with Peter and Pia and found the Wryneck in the same location along with 4 Mistle Thrush, some Wheatear, Whinchats and Stonechats too. It's that time of the month again, tomorrow night at 7pm the Bird nerds will be meeting up at the old steading at Gruinart Farm, to go down on to see what is on Loch Gruinart, may be see you there...
