Tues 8th June

Another great image through from Carl taken yesterday when he was out at Tormisdale. On his way out there he saw 2 different male Hen Harriers and going through the Gearach forestry there was a Mistle Thrush. At Port Mor last night, Carl had a Short eared Owl while at home today he had young Song Thrushes out, as well as a pair of Siskins on the nut feeders, the first for a few months.
Bob reported in seeing 3 Kestrel at different locations of late, and a visitor commented that there were not as many Wheatears around compared with just around a month ago.
This morning James had heard a Spotted Crake, and had 3 Water rail and also heard an Otter calling on its young all on the reserve at Gruinart.
Today, out past Ardbeg we were watching the Seals loafing about on the rocks on Seal Bay when there was a movement in one of the clumps of seaweed, and an Otter appeared and we were fortunate to watch it for a few minutes. Further on there was a pair of Bullfinch and 2 families of Long tailed Tits in the Hazel trees after the Gatehouse entering Ardtalla Estate.
