Yesterday, Carl had 100+ Wigeon and 60+ Red breasted Merganser around the rocks beside the Gaelic College at high tide. A few Curlew and at least 2 Knot were also present. Coming home, and at Carnain ("smelly corner") over 100 Teal were noted.
This morning at Port Charlotte, Carl reported in that there was a large number of Swallows hawking over Loch Indaal.
By the way, James and Eleanor left Islay this morning to head out to the mainland and do their first leg of their Kayak trip. It was great to read on their blog last night that they have raised over £2,000, fantastic. Let's hope the weather is kind to them now!
