3rd March

Went to Gorple today with DJS for the reported Water Pipit. Very flighty and very odd looking bird, didnt think it was one at first but better views and heard calling in flight later on had us both convinced it was one. The lack of obvious wing bars was puzzling but as MH pointed out that it was probably moulting prior to migration made sence. Also 1 Peregrine, 21 Golden Plovers, 20 Curlews, 3 Oystercatchers, 30+ Lapwing, 2 Red Grouse, 1 Dipper, 1 Common Gull, 3 Mistle Thrush and lots of Canada Geese.
