24th February

MID-ARGYLL: I looked for the adult Glaucous Gull at Ardfern again today and try for a decent photo.  Sadly, I did find it – dead, on the shore near the village hall here and next to a deer carcass.  Beautiful bird (Ju Randall).
COWAL: George Newal had 6 Jays in his garden in Dunoon today…usually only 2-3 birds visit and this equals the record of 6 birds seen there last year also on 24th Feb!.
