Always Birding
Feb 6, 2017
A noticeable influx of Blackbird and to a lesser extent Chaffinch, the latter being a relatively uncommon bird here in Askernish. Amongst the Blackbird, there were 2 controls (birds ringed elsewhere) and the male Chaffinch were dark/brick red with a wing length of 90+ mm which is indicative of continental birds. A Chiffchaff was also present.

There was no sign of the Little Egrets at either Loch Hallan or Loch na Liana Moire this afternoon
