Saturday Birds

Yesterday despite the foul weather in the morning I was out with folks as it promised to clear by midday and by 11.00 we were wader watching on Gruinart: Sanderling, Dunlin, Barwits and Curlew, Plovers as well as plenty of Oystercatchers and the odd Grey Heron as well. We headed southwards seeing hirundines feeding at Couillabus and Red Deer on the hill. Raven footered about on Borachill Mor. At Carnain there were more waders yet no sighting of the poss. Bairds Sandpiper from earlier in the week. Buzzards hung around on the trees behind us and Pied Wags were feeding young. The sun even managed to shine!
