News from Ness

The weekend weather was mostly dreadful, and there were few interesting birds to report. Today picked up a little.

Hen Harrier – currently three in the area: an adult male, an immature male and a ringtail.
House Sparrow – four currently in residence around the lighthouse
Redwing – 5 at the lighthouse
Fieldfare – 10 at the lighthouse

Bramblings – 2 in Port of Ness
Crossbill one flew SW over Port of Ness (12.40) high up and ‘chipping’ loudly
Common Rosefinch – one calling loudly in the sycamore plantation next to my rented house at 9 Port of Ness (11.55) flew off SW with House Sparrows.
