2010 New Year Walk

A Happy New Year to all Tain & District Field Club members and friends:

New Year walk:
Eight brave souls ventured out on 2nd January and had a good but very cold walk.
Highlights were :
The stranded white-beaked dolphin, 0382-800x160

The dolphin has now been removed by Scottish Strandings.  Post-mortem did not show any physical cause for the stranding so chemical and biological samples have been sent for analysis. Links regarding strandings (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).DSD3878_dolphin_beached_R_W

Also, seen at a distance, a small sanderling flock on the beach; sanderling 2010 new year walkand slightly nearer, a large flock of 150+ twite twite 2010 new year walk
