Sunday 17th January

Lesley had a couple of Brambling amongst the finch flock at her house close to Carraig Fhada at Port Ellen, on Friday and Saturday, but no sign of them today! Today was the day for the WeBS count, so Bob and myself carried out our patch from Bowmore down to Gartbreck, Gary at the same time covered from Port Charlotte back round to Blackrock.. The weather was a bit inclement, but we battled on and got the job done! On our patch, we saw 26 species with Gary having 19, but of interest was the change in species noted, we had no Divers, or Eiders, but we had Teal, and Shelduck. Gary did not have as many waders as us but he had not the shoreline to expect them on really either. Gary also had 3 Kittiwakes as well as a poorly Puffin, which now has passed on...
