27th and 28th January

The usual 2nd winter Glaucous Gull was seen in the south of the Island on both dates, but otherwise the only significant sighting on 27th was the first Water Rail of the year at Bridesness Loch. On 28th a 2nd winter Iceland Gull (also likely a lingering bird) was on the Links, 60 European White-fronted Geese counted near the School and the Scaup reappeared on Ancum. A juvenile male Hen Harrier was at least the fourth individual seen this week, and two Merlins and a Peregrine were around Twingness.
