23rd February

The first Pied Wagtail of the year was seen near Purtabreck, but there was no sign of either the Glossy Ibis or Green-winged Teal. The majority of interest is currently amongst the many Greylag Goose flocks with singles of Pink-footed, Tundra Bean and Canada Goose plus the 6 White-fronted Geese. There were now 3 Grey Herons at Ancum Loch where the male Hen Harrier was seen hunting Snipe. A trickle of 19 skylarks through the day was encouraging.
