Monday 18th January
A wet and misty day, not much good for birding, a day for catching up on the paper work. I was out on Friday doing 3 NEWS sectors for BTO on the north of the Island from Gortantaoid- a really long and difficult walk, but fantastic scenery. I did not record very many shore birds, but did OK for birds of prey with 2 Golden Eagles and 2 juv White Tailed Eagles, 3 of the eagles were all flying around together watching me watching them, also a good view of a Jack Snipe, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, 4 Ravens and 26 goats including 2 very small kids.
