Sat 18th July

While going down to Bowmore earlier this evening, there were a pair of Mute swans at the mouth of the burn that enters Loch Indaal close to Blackrock. I had been speaking to Malcolm about these Swans earlier in the week, and wondered if in fact that these were the same pair that had hatched a brood of 5 young at Carnain in late May, could all the young have been predated? The other question is, are these the same pair that successfully reared the cygnets last year? On the positive side of things, at lunchtime there was the sighting of 6 Mistle Thushes, no doubt 2 adults and 4 young, down on the heather beside McNicol's croft.
