Thursday 22nd December

 I don't know what the weather has been like on Islay today as I left on the 7am ferry.

Morven Laurie from Nature Scot kindly sent in the International Goose Count figures for Islay in the census carried out on the 20th and 21st December: 31,785 Barnacle Geese, 5,243 Greenland White-fronted Geese and 1,439 Greylag Geese.

Elsewhere today, Ed Burrell saw a Greenshank down at Cornabus (they are usually found on Loch Gruinart). While over on Jura, Louise Muir reports the lovely sound of lots of Great Northern Divers calling in Small Isles Bay.
