Yesterday and today
No1 - Lesser Scaup, but most of the diving duck had departed from Ayre's Loch, no sign.
No2 - Green-winged Teal, but a thorough search of Graemashall Loch produced only a few crecca.
No3 - Redbanks on the Yinstay Rd, bingo! Excellent drake Surf Scoter. Also there a good number of Velvet Scoter and 8 Great Northerns and a most impressive flock of 200 Barwits.
Today was a gardening day. Chaffinch flew into the large Sycamore. Then just before lunch five Goldfinch flew across the garden and landed next door.
