Michal was up early this morning to take this image of the Geese leaving the roost and heading out round Islay. Needless to say, most of us were probably still in bed! During his working day, Michal had heard a Chiffchaff calling near to the viewing platform as you go down to the hide at Gruinart. We, ourselves saw our first Wheatear this morning over at Saligo
At this time of the year, the Estates both here on Islay and Jura, usually carry out a count of the Deer. Donald James ("DJ") MacPhee had been speaking to me earlier on this evening, and had seen a White tailed Sea eagle while helping doing the count over Islay Estates' land, while Gordon Muir, Louise's other half reported in to having seen some over on Jura, when out counting over there.
