Sunday 7th December
Brrr, and yes Winter has come. A lot colder out here today, not been out a lot as the weather is not really for birdwatching! Just saw a flash of lightning followed by a clap of thunder, so have gone and looked out the candles in case the power and the lights go off!! Bob this morning had seen 7 Whoopers fly past down at Port Charlotte and then a Woodcock up at Gleann Mor. Mary had braved the weather too and she had 35 Golden Plovers sheltering up in a field at Claddach, a Kestrel found a stoney perch, nearby while on the feeders there a large flock of Chaffinches along with 3 Greenfinches and a Blackbird. I hear that the ferry is diverting into Port Askaig this evening and the same for the first sailing tomorrow morning, the advantage of having 2 ferry ports on one island!
