On Thursday a Slavonian Grebe coming into summer plumage was at Loch Beg. As the weather got worse over the weekend the first lambs were born. All 5 resident stags are still with their antlers which normally come away end of March start of April.
Next week I am hoping for our first Swallow/ Cuckoo, last year I saw both on April 9th two days earlier than 2014.
Last week “Livingston” the Cuckoo travelled 918 miles in 18hr so 5 good days and he might arrive. If the wind keeps blowing he could be here in 2 and who knows we might get our first view of the Osprey.
