Harbour Dunnocks

North Harbour Wall

Visit at 8am to check and replenish Niger seed. Birds feeding at first were just 5 Goldfinch, 7 Linnets, 2 Robins and 3 Dunnocks.

Also two adult Med Gulls nearby.

After a check of the south side of the harbour where no more small birds were seen, a return to the north wall a little later found that the finches had built up to about 35.

Very flighty and dogs about so didn't manage to see them all on the ground. 

Mainly Goldfinch and Linnets with probably no more than 7 Twite, at least three ringed, two local recent ones and the Machrihanish red/green.
