Monday 24th August
I have a bit of catching up to do- so we will start with today. At Loch Gruinart the Osprey was flying around and a Sparrowhawk hunting along the road. At Bridgend Gary had 145 Oystercatchers, 95 Curlew, 20 Black Tailed Godwits, 2 Bar Tailed Godwits and 20 Ruff. Now we will go back to the weekend - Gary had been out and about looking for the Rose Coloured Starling. On Saturday he eventually located the Rose Coloured starling with a flock of Starlings nr. Sunderland Farm, after seeing 2 rintail Hen Harriers, 7 Buzzards, a Kestrel and Sparrowhawk at Kilchoman. On Sunday he re-found the Rose Coloured Starling and as a bonus saw 2 Ospreys
nr. Loch Gorm, one with a huge fish!
