Sunday 5th February

Better weather today - brighter, dry, moderate winds. This got me out on a walk along the coast and heather moorland from Sanaigmore north to Ardnave Loch. It was an interesting scramble, but, given it is February, understandably birdless  - just two Meadow Pipits and a Stonechat, plus a few gulls and Oystercatchers along the shore.

On the way we saw the Marsh Harrier feeding on something along with a Buzzard, north of Gruinart, which Lucy Atkinson clocked a little later. A couple of young White-tailed Eagles were also on the prowl. A couple of Little Egrets remain on the RSPB Floods.
