Goldcrests 2 Crossbills 7!

A cracking morning birding with regulars from Oban. We headed out towards the new abbatoir
where we immediately had a small flock of Crossbils, then there were in total. Then we enjoyed a pair of Goldcrest working along the larches and Martins and Swallows picked up food in the lee of the wind. Down onto the Merse there were plenty of Dunlin, Plover and
Barwits. Gannets fed off the shore line and a pair of Buzzards floated above. Wonderful.
