Feeding sites and habitat: Thorough surveys in recent winters have shown that as well as the core area of Rhunahaorine Point, feeding occurs on a range of fields south to Killean and Tayinloan. The main feeding area at Rhunahaorine is an extensive area of improved and reseeded grassland and well as rough Juncus dominated grassland and wetland (NR7049). Other sites include improved pasture near Auchindrain (NR717509), Killean (NR690442) and in autumn stubble fields near Tayinloan and Culfuar (NR698445 to NR698458).
As elsewhere, this flock specialises on grassland for the vast majority of the winter, but the flock will glean grain from arable fields, whilst the food resource remains to make such foraging is profitable.

There is also a reference in the newspaper archives to the death of a Hugh Fraser of Auchindrain, Kintyre, in 1933
"who was well known in the West Highlands as a breeder of sheep and cattle"
