After a dampish start to the day, the weather turned better this afternoon.
A visiting birder had reported into RSPB at Gruinart that he had seen a Ring Ouzel earlier on in the week on a dyke up towards Ardnave.
Carl had been down to Portnahaven today and saw a Peregrine at Carn, 21 Common Gulls and 4 Lesser black backed Gulls, at Craigfad 6 Curlew were seen at Octofad. On the pond at Easter Ellister, the Greylags were present with 30 goslings and at Wester Ellister, Whichat, Whitethroat and Skylark were seen. At Portnahaven itself, Redpolls were heard calling.
Here at home this evening, looking out the kitchen window, a Buzzard was getting mobbed by the Jackdaws (think I remember writing that before, a couple of years ago!)
