Sat 17th April

Another week in, and some new birders in for the next week too, another set of eyes to look out for birds! After coming off the ferry this morning, they had seen a Sandwich Tern down at Port Ellen, and a wee while later on had a Yellowhammer along towards Kildalton.
This morning, there were 17 Whooper Swan overhead here at home, flying quite low, so they probably were going to Loch Gorm for a rest.
While I was over on Colonsay and Oronsay on Wednesday, I heard that there had been a couple of Spotted Redshank on The Strand, and a Hawfinch had been seen on a feeder on Colonsay itself, the previous week.
