BIRD WALK FEBRUARY

by TIM WRIGHT - 17:09 on 20 February 2013

Nine hardy souls met at the Evie Sands today in a stiff South easterly wind but cold,dry weather.We walked from beyond the Broch back to the toilets and luckily the tide was out so we were able to get down on the shore.All the usual birds of the shore were seen such as Turnstones,Ring Plover as well as Merganzers,Long Tailed Ducks and a solitary Great Northern Diver.The highlight was a Red Throated Diver seen out at sea but not on the Burgher Hill Loch when we went up later.We were all very happy to get back to the cars and warm up.
Beryl is looking into orginizing a trip to Westray to walk the West Side walk.She is planing this for June 12th .She is discussing this with Graham Maben to take us to the start of the walk and to bring us back to the village at the end.There is a maximum number of 14 for this and it requires a reasonable degree of fitness as I think it is approx 8 to 10 miles .The members of the group today seemed keen to take this on .More information will follow.
