Achnahaird & Polbain
Barnacle goose with Greylags at Ardmair was a nice surprise for this area. Achnahaird was busy today with disturbance from a team of photographers and several dog-walkers so birds were thin on the ground with just a single Great northern diver in the bay and a few common gulls on the beach. A solo skylark feeding in the flotsam was a welcome year tick (81). Following the circular road around to Polbain turned up two Iceland gulls on Loch Camas. Back at Ardmair a distant little grebe was the only bird other than very distant Herring and GBB gulls.
