The last few days it has been good hightides at the reserve, and even better it has been dry and bright too.

We are still waiting for the return of the Greenland white fronted geese, it seems groups have been arriving in Coll and Western Scotland so it should not be too long before they arrive here.

In the meantime visitors hav ebeen enjoying flocks of redwing and fieldfares passing through just before the cold spell of the last couple of days.

A walk through the woods can be rewarded with long tailed titts and goldcrests. 

Out on the pools and slatmarsh sightings of dunlin, curlew, oysterctachers, grey plover, redshank, lapwing, bar tailed godwit  with goosander, teal, shoveler and wigeon. Birds of prey have included peregrine, marsh harrier, sparrowhawk along with red kites and buzzards.
