23rd December,2008.

For the most part a rather murky day.Spent the time completing various chores, calling in on friends and taking a look at many of the Greenland White-fronted Goose flocks looking for collared birds after the reports of last week, but to no avail. A flock of around 140 Grey lag Geese at Ballinaby was the largest gathering of them I'd seen recently.
Buzzards seem very numerous at the moment, possibly needing to be more active with the demise of the rabbit population, which must have provided such easy pickings previously. Generally things seem very "settled" at the moment with no noticeable major changes in numbers of birds, flocks etc but , doubtless, this is all poised to change in the not too distant future.
