South Ayshire Hogmanay
Having made our way up to Girvan yesterday afternoon, we awoke to a bright and sunny morning though bitterly cold. There's little snow around here but plenty further east and north. A quick glance towards Arran revealed snow covered mountains - a spectacular view from here.
Calling in at Turnberry pool on our way back, I counted 66 Teal, 22 Tufted Ducks, 7 Snipe, 2 Little Grebes and single Mute and Whooper Swans. A brief scan offshore revelead a single Black-throated Diver as well as the usual Eider and Red-breasted Merganser and small flocks of Linnets.
