Saturday 14th January

As promised some birds on the blog tonight... Mandy earlier this week had a Lesser Black backed Gull over at Ballinaby, and a few moments earlier she spotted a male Hen Harrier out quartering its' patch close to Saligo. Last night, she saw a Barn Owl hunting along the verge side on the "high road", near to Avonvoggie. Gary yesterday, while out walking the dog, had seen a White tailed Eagle fly over Keills.  Mike Peacock  had carried his WeBS count on Outer Loch Indaal today, his highlights included a count of 36 GND, 4 RTD, 6 R b Merganser, 8 Eider, 10 Shag, 2 Cormorant and a Tystie. David Barr had a male Sparrowhawk as he was driving along the "Glen road" about a mile out of Ballygrant. Bob had around 70 Scaup, close inshore at Blackrock at midday, earlier on he had spotted the albino Barnacle goose amongst other Barnies over at Gartmain.
