Monday 15 and Tuesday 16 January


 Beautiful image of a chough submitted by Phil following is stay last week. Many thanks.

Speaking of chough, the Portnahaven pair have been busy between the village and Currie Sands, making the daily trip to find their food.

Over on the WhatsApp group yesterday, Angharad reported a snow bunting at the Oa, possibly the same solitary bird I saw near the monument last Friday.  Andy meanwhile reported red-throated and great Northern divers off Uiskentui along with the Glaucous gull.

Today James located the red-breasted goose off Craigens.

It is a sharp, cold spell with snow on the Paps of Jura contributing to a real wind chill.  Some snow lay at Keills but the rest of the island stayed green.  One of the reasons the geese like us so much!
