Still very cold with intermittent snow showers means a lot more being inside than out at the moment. A call from John Laurie this morning alerted me to a Knot just beside my house with the local Golden Plover flock, as much as i tried i could not get it onto the garden list so hopped in the car and drove round to add it to the year list. The Greylag flock persists in front of the house still with 55 being the maximum count yesterday. A check of the Houb in the faint hope of a Little Auk resting in the bay paid off with the Black-throated Diver again, over at Challister Ness. Thats 2 more to the list and thankfully passed the 50 mark.
