Still very quiet with just the Water Rail and a couple of Robins of note over the past couple of days. The dog walk around patch this morning produced a brief Jackdaw, it wasn't long before it flew off in the direction of Symbister, probably the wintering bird stretching its wings? A tour of the isle brought nothing new apart from 2 Rooks up at Skaw constantly harassed by a pair of Hooded Crows. With them being so flighty i whizzed back onto patch and managed to easily scope them from all of 2.1 miles away. Hey, at least it was a big black bird and not a small yellow one!!
