Louise was on the phone this evening and gave me some sightings of raptors over on Jura on her way home tonight and they were all after Craighouse. She had seen 2 Merlin, 3 Hen Harrier, 5 Short-eared Owls and 1 Peregrine.
Back here on Islay, I have not much to report apart from seeing 2 Yellowhammer over near to Persabus, close to Keills, my first for the year. Malcolm had seen a Short-eared Owl displaying over the moorland at Gearach this morning. Back here at home, just before tea time, a Buzzard flew overhead, carrying nesting material and I had noticed some Jackdaws doing the same, earlier this morning. The weather today, turned out better than expected although there had been quite a lot of rain through the night.
