October 2012


Just had a great day at Jericho Loch – had 8 trout to 19 1/2 pounds. My mate James had 3 trout to 17 1/2 pounds  – his biggest was 12 1/2 pounds.  All in 5 hours. What a day out.


On the bird front – skeins of geese, up to 300 at a time,flying over McMurdoston House. But where  have all the tree sparrows gone? There were 30 earlier in the year and now just one. Oh – and the last five baby swallows left one by one, daily, finishing on October 3rd. One barn owl spotted behind the barn.
