6 December 2007

What a start to the day - horizontal rain and sleet! Ugh. We edged our way southwards via Duich. A cracking Peregrine perched on an old ruin was superb and we watched it for an hour! Lucky for us, at Claggain, we found Great Northern Diver, Kittiwakes, Arctic Skua and an adult Ring Billed Gull. On our return the weather had improved and we looked along the Bowmore side of Indaal. Long Tailed Duck, Pale Bellied Brents, and Slavonian Grebe and of course plenty of Barnies and Whitefronts in the fields beyond.
