Some more excellent winter birds
On to Dipple and there were three Black-throated Divers and two Razorbills offshore as well as plenty of Eider, Goldeneye and Wigeon. A few Grey Seals bobbed offshore.
I decided that it would be a good time to visit Loch Ryan so I headed south, stopping briefly at Lendalfoot where there were around 1000 Herring Gulls and a few Greater Black-backs in the fields or on the shore. A Merlin zoomed across the road near Cairnryan.
Frustrated that I hadn't seen any Slavonian Grebes, I made my way round to Wig Bay where I found one along with three Long-tailed Ducks and 250 Greylag Geese. From there I went looking for more Geese around West Freugh and quite quickly found a good flock of Greylags and a few White-fronted Geese in the distance. I could hear Pinkfeet and around five minutes later around 3000 took to the air. I came accross another flock of 100 Greenland White-fronts whilst Ravens croaked overhead as a fine end to the day's birding.
