Always Birding
Feb 6, 2017
It's like the heavy overnight rain dissolved all the Lapwing, Curlew and Black-tailed Godwits that were on the machair yesterday and replaced them with numerous Wheatears [some looking like Greenland type] and Meadow Pipits. The only Black-tailed Godwits to be found were c50 at Boisedale on newly flooded fields. An Osprey was at Loch Bornish briefly this afternoon and a Chiffchaff was in the garden here at Askernish. I was also very happy to find one of my colour ringed spuggies in a garden at Kilpheder. S49 was ringed at a juvenile in July this year, last seen on 24th.
