Always Birding
Feb 6, 2017
Good numbers of waders for Askernish were on the beach with 43 Bar-tailed Godwits, 60+ Purple Sandpipers, 250+ Sanderling, 50+ Ringed Plovers and 40+ Turnstone at low tide. The 8 White-fronted Geese were on the machair as well as 3 Meadow Pipits, the latter not normally seen here at this time of year. A little Egret was on Loch Hallan around midday and with the 2 seen on Benbecula today, this is most likely to be a third bird. 23 Redwings were around the township.
