On the 2nd CC saw 5 Fieldfares near Toechtamhor. They are not uncommon in autumn but this is the first true winter record during the survey years for the new UK Atlas.
On the 9th whilst surveying the coast just south of Reudle, I saw another young White-tailed Eagle just above the Dun at Burg. This one landed and although I only had binoculars I could see letter S on it’s white wing tags. It was therefore traceable as a ringed chick from North Uist in 2007.
On the 19th a female Goldeneye was at Reudle Old Schoolhouse (Larach Mhor). This is the first record near Treshnish farm and could be the same small duck that CC and Leena saw in the first week of March on Duill pond.
On warm days in late February Song Thrushes could be heard singing.
