signs of migration

Post by Bruce » 27 Feb 2016, 18:34

Some signs of migration on Barra in the past few days. On Thursday night I heard barnacle geese calling over the house at 9pm. On Friday a group of 8 whooper swans flew north over the island, continuing towards the Uists. A further group of 28 flew north up the Minch at 4.30 this afternoon. Also today my first pied wagtail of the year at Castlebay and the 2nd winter glaucous gull still feeding on a dead seal at Traigh Eais; the seal must be well past its "best before" date by now!
