Fri 9th July

This is an image sent in by Dan Brown taken from the ferry last week as he came over for a few days. If you look above the top right Manx Shearwater you will see a Peregrine Falcon. It had several attempts attacking the Shearwaters, but with no luck! He also saw 2 Crossbills at Ardtalla and had a large flock of Redpolls in one of the fields there too. If you remember back to February, Dan sent in the image of the White tailed Sea Eagle taken on the flats at Gruinart.
One of our visitors had found a dead Puffin the other day down at the "singing sands" at Port Ellen.
James is on holiday down on The Scilly Isles and was on the phone tonight to say plenty of Bottle nosed Dolphins to be seen, and also live Puffins around too! On Monday he is hoping to be "snorkeling with seals", all going well. The weather is better down there by the sound of things!
We noticed several Arctic Terns along the shoreline of Loch Indaal between Bruichladdich and Gortan.
