Friday 3rd February

Today James had seen 3 Greenshank, a Sparrowhawk and counted a flock of 850 Golden Plover on the RSPB reserve at Gruinart. He also counted 6990 Barnacle Geese and 149 Whitefronts on the reserve as well... Over close to Glenmachrie around midday, Margaret spotted a Peregrine on top of a fence post. It must have seen us too, as it was off before I could get the camera on it.... Mike Peacock was in touch today to say that he had seen a couple of Ravens nest building in the trees at Foreland. Down on Machir Bay, Mike had a count of 79 Oystercatcher and as he headed home, he spotted a Merlin at Rockside. Finally mid afternoon, he had a pod of 8 Bottle nosed Dolphins feeding on Loch Indaal out from the pier at Port Charlotte, and also Mike's house...
