Hursday 10th January
Today, Gary had been down on the Oa where he had a flock of Twite, numbering “several hundred birds”. He had also seen 4 Choughs down there as well. Coming back along the “Low road”, Gary saw a male Hen Harrier close to the Machrie. Back up at Finlaggan , and he had another male Hen Harrier seen. Here at home this morning, and Margaret had a ringtail Hen Harrier float over the garden out from the big gable end window…. Fantastic, a real garden bird, it better be here for the “Big garden bird watch” at the end of the month!!!
