DARK-BELLIED BRENT GOOSE at Maidens, Ayrshire
Wasn't out for too long today - that wind would punch holes in you!! However, Maidens now has an adult DARK-BELLIED BRENT GOOSE (a very scarce species in Ayrshire) along with the 4 Pale-bellied Brents - they were all feeding on the football field at 14.00 hrs. Two Little Grebes are now in the harbour and the 1st winter male Black Redstart was in the first bay south of the main breakwater - it occasionally feeds there but will return to the bay in front of West Nook if disturbed (Angus Hogg).
