16th October,2009.

An absolutely glorious day. quite warm and sunny throughout. The sea was an inviting expanse of blue but with few birds around. A local loch had six rather tired adult Whooper Swans present, a party of Greenland White-fronted Geese and around thirty Grey lag Geese. All but latter had probably just arrived and were taking a well earned rest!!

Completed a whole variety of tasks associated with the upcoming BTO Winter Atlas survey, which commences on the !st November. The third winter of four, it's generating as much enthusiasm as the first with several people mentioning how much they're looking forward to it. I rather guess the weather may have turned a little different by then!
