Tues 3rd Feb

Another image provided by Michal, of the flock of Purple Sandpiper that he took on Sunday. There are the best part of 100 birds on this image alone and Michal assured me that there were a further 20 that did not fly off. Malcolm reckons that the previous high for Islay was only 45! Certainly looking through various books they all seem to refer them being seen in small numbers.
