Malcolm sent me in a late entry for Saturday after I had done the blog last night. He had 24 Pale bellied Brent Geese beside the spit on the Strand, and the Little Egret was still to be seen on Saturday morning down at "smelly corner". It was there again this afternoon. Down at Sunderland Farm today, there were a few large groups of Geese to be seen, mainly Barnies, along with a few Whitefronts, and a flock of over 100 Greylags on another grass field by themselves.
It was interesting speaking to a visitor on Saturday, from close to Newcastle, who commented on seeing Stonechats, a rarity to himself, but common to ourselves here on Islay.
