Hi there

The following are 2009 records from David Fotheringham, mostly relating to sightings in Renfrewshire, but a few from Argyll, Inverclyde and Ayrshire. Most are common species and I have erred on the side of caution with "difficult" species. I have photographs of most, should any require confirmation. I hope they are of some use. Best wishes David

Many thanks for this David.

Like Sandy you remind me that the spring is not too far away - at least in the south! At the moment it feels like the Arctic tho'!

Kindest regards

Roger
