Yesterday Gary had a juv. White tailed Eagle, close to Caol Ila. Today, Mandy had a count of 48 Ringed Plover down on Machir Bay, the largest count of them she has had there. She also had over 50 Common Gull, 30 Oystercatcher with a count of 58 Curlew on the rocks up the North end of the bay. Phill Catton this afternoon had seen the following birds from Blackrock, 20 Common Scoter, 4 Long tailed duck, 1 Red throated Diver, 8 R b Merganser, 7 Slavonian Grebe, 3 Goldeneye, a G b b Gull, some B h Gull and some  Herring Gulls, 3 Shag, a Buzzard and 2 Raven.  This afternoon, we counted mixed group of 103 Chaffinches/ House Sparrows in readiness for the big garden birdwatch... There were also 16 Starlings seen too, but the Goldfinches are not so numerous as a month or so ago...
