Collieston News

Thought it was time to update again. A good few weeks with Bean Goose being a completely new patch bird for me, and year additions that have included Short-eared Owl, Barn Owl,Glaucous Gull, Brent Goose(a flock of pale bellied birds at Cransdale), Barnacle Goose and Scaup. Eagerly awaiting the first Goldcrest of the spring!
During the Humpback excitement also saw Bonxie, Pom and Arctic skuas at different times, a first for this time of year for me.
Build up of Red-Throats on the sea, but still no Great Northern, which has eluded me for nearly 2 years now.
Continue to see the odd Iceland Gull round the patch, all 2W,...not certain how many different birds have been involved.
Total now at 83, which is an average of 53.78%
One of the number of Short-eared Owls in the area.
