After a dullish, misty start to the day the sun soon peeled the clouds away and a grand sunny warm day followed.
Last night, or was it early this morning on his way home from Portnahaven, Carl heard a couple of Corncrakes and a Grasshopper Warbler at Brookfield, and further on at Carn there was another Grasshopper Warbler. Today at home in Port Charlotte, Carl had a Spotted Flycatcher and a Grey Wagtail.
Over at Loch Skerrols this evening there was a Treecreeper. The Loch itself was very quiet with a distant Mute Swan being the only bird on the water. Overhead a Buzzard was getting mobbed by a couple of Jackdaws.
