Fri 30th July

I received an interesting e mail through from James today which had been forwarded through from Rory who was here on Islay last year. It had been forwarded to Rory through the RSPB grapevine. The long and the short of this e mail, is that during 3 different archaeological digs carried out on the Outer Hebrides, here on Islay and on Rousay in Orkney that bones had been found of a Gadfly Petrel spp dating back to the first millennium AD. It is not only the present birds on Islay that we let you know about...
Back to today, and I noticed that one of the Swallows up in the shed has hatched her second brood with 5 youngsters looking to be fed!
