Thursday 28th March

Rainy, cold with blustery east winds in the morning, becoming only slightly better in the afternoon, with drier, more sunny conditions.

Roger Broad ventured out to Portnahaven this morning finding 6 Purple Sandpipers and 25 Turnstone in the harbour there and an immature White-tailed Eagle at Cladville on the way back. In the same area, Mary Redman counted 15 Whooper Swans on Claddach Loch this morning, gone by the afternoon when 9 Canada Geese were in residence there.

Elsewhere, Lucy Atkinson saw another Wheatear over at Smaull, and in the Gruinart area James How had Golden Eagle, Chiffchaff and the Red-breasted Goose. Roger B. continued on his wanderings to Gartmain where 2 Long-tailed Ducks were noted in the lee of quite choppy waters in Loch Indaal.
