Wednesday 7th December

A calm, dry start turned into rain showers and a lot greyer skies with a warning of cold weather coming soon.

As hoped, Malcom Ogilvie has reported back on the colour-ringed Greenland White-fronts for us: “All four of CSZ, CZK, CZT and CZY were caught at Ballinaby in winter 2019-20 and seen around Loch Gorm in each of the subsequent winters.

 CZC and CZF were both caught at Cornabus in winter 2019-20 and have been seen in that area each winter since. Both have also been seen in Iceland on migration.”

Another day with few observations: 

James how counted 4 White-tailed Eagles up at Gruinart. He also found a Jack Snipe there. Down at Upper Killeyan on The Oa David Dinsley had a Peregrine and another couple of White-tailed Eagles in the air talon-grappling.

Down at Port Charlotte I saw an Otter and a couple of Great Northern Divers close in to the village.
