Monday 4th January
This morning, I caught up with Gary and Bob who were already at the South hide (old hide) or Taigh deas as it is called in Gaelic. The main birds that we saw from there were a Green winged Teal, 2 Little Grebe and a Goldeneye. From the North hide, (new hide/ Taigh tuath) we had a Greenshank fly past with 83 Sanderling counted out on the estuary. Going back down to Bob's house, they had seen 3 small groups of Pale bellied Brents between Gortan and Bruichladdich, totalling 27 Geese.
