Sunday 12th February

Tom Lowe had the RBG at Gruinart early this morning, the photo below is one he took of the same bird at Gruinart a couple of days previously. 

After that, Tom had a high count of 60 purple sandpipers at Ardnave, along with 39 chough, and a WTE. There were 370 grey seals on Nave Island, another good count. Back down the road at Gruinart, Tom had 5 WTE, 2 imm goldies, 5 little egrets and the marsh harrier. Over on Loch Indaal, there were female surf and velvet scoters plus 120 common scoters off Blackrock, with the glauc gull still at Uiskentuie and the Siberian race white-front at Corsapol. 

Dan Pointon reports a Richardson's Canada from the glen road and 24 twite at Machir Bay, with chough and a male hen harrier also in the area. Last night he had 2 barn owls along the high road.

Waltraud saw a male hen harrier on the road to Kintra. And that's yer lot. Mary's back tomorrow!! Thanks to all the above for their sightings.
