18th January,2012......belatedly!

The last couple of days have been a bit hectic with arrangements to be off island for a period, getting various surveys completed , having some new tyres fitted and a host of other bits and pieces that erode away time and provide few opportunities for additional options!!

Today saw me on the ferry across to the mainland in somewhat murky weather that provided few opportunities for birding. Fog and drizzle are a miserable combination at the best of times so little benefit came out of the general journey. Managed to check various harbours and other suitable places for "white gulls " but without any luck which suggests little penetration inland as yet despite good numbers on the coast.

Loch Lomond and Glasgow itself were wreathed in mist and rain so the day ended, as it had begun, as a bit of a write-off!
