Wednesday 27th January
Gary, Sam, and their friends George and Annette from the mainland sent some sightings through. Up at Bunnahabhain yesterday, they saw a Heron, 2 GBB Gull, 15 H. Gull, 21 Cormorant, 7 Shag, 17 GND, 6 Oystercatcher and a Turnstone. On the way to the Bird nerds meeting last night, they saw a Barn Owl at the market at Bridgend and then shortly afterwards along past the entrance to Whin Park, another Barn Owl. We had 12 hardy souls who came along to the "meeting" last night, not bad for time of the year and also the weather too. This morning, out flying in front of the crag were a couple of Fulmars, a sign of some stormy weather not far off!!!
