Sunday 26th December

We're back! Hope you all had a good Christmas. There were a few folk out and about today, working up the appetite to finish off those mince pies. Peter had bird of the day, an imm Iceland gull at Uiskentuie, plus a WTE, 7 whoopers and 5 goldeneye at Ardnave Loch. There were 3 WTE, 4 whoopers and a sparrowhawk at Gruinart, with an otter giving close views for ages at the South Hide this morning. James had a golden eagle at Gruinart, and then 4 purple sandpipers and an otter at Ardnave. 

Today's pic is from Phil Edwards again, who braved the easterly gales at Machir Bay yesterday. 

Phil tried for the purple sands at Bruichladdich today, but no joy. He did have 11 turnstone and a red-throated diver instead. The rest of Phil's day produced 2 chough at Kilchiaran, a GND at Portnahaven,  16 fieldfare and 10 redwing at Nerabus plus 8 fieldfare and 3 mistle thrush at Ballinaby.
