Sat 3rd April

A visitor who had been round Ardnave this afternoon gave me in his sightings. The highlight was probably 3 pairs of Wheatear, he also had 9 Pale bellied Brent Geese in the lee of Nave Island, 3 Sanderling, 6 Turnstone, 1 Grey Plover and 1 Great Northern Diver. On Nave Island itself, there were 50 Grey Seals while on Ardnave Loch were some Tufted Duck and Mute Swan but no Whooper Swan present.
Another birder had counted 25 Pale bellied Brent Geese on Loch Indaal, as well as a male Hen Harrier out on the wing.
