The rest of February 2015

The White-billed diver was still in Water Sound on the 12 and 14 Feb.

A single Glaucous Gull was seen at Echnaloch Bay on the 14 Feb and another one in Water Sound off of Westshore on the 18 Feb. Two more were seen on the 21 Feb in the fields to the north of the football pitch.

On the 23 Feb I stopped off at Echnaloch Bay / Loch on my way home. On the bay side of the road there were 53 Oystercatchers, 1 Curlew and 37 Lapwing along the water's edge, 80+ Fulmar up on the cliffs/flying around and 2 Common Gull, 13 Long-tailed Ducks, 11 Eiders, 3 Herring Gulls and 3 Great Black-backed Gulls out on the sea.

On the other side of the road on the Loch there were 2 Long-tailed Ducks, 21 Tufted Ducks, 6 Mallard, 18 Wigeon, 2 Goldeneyes and a Grey Heron.

A Whimbrel was seen by Barrie on the 28 Feb.
