I was speaking with James late last night, after I had done the blog, and he had seen a Swallow and also a Wheatear whilst he was out and about through the day.
On Loch Gruinart yesterday, Bob had noted 3 Grey Plover and around 30 Knot. Today, Bob had been up around Ardnave. On Ardnave loch itself were 7 Whooper Swan, over on Nave Island 10 Barnacle Geese were present, and a male Hen Harrier flew back from Nave Island over to Ardnave itself. On the water itself, a Black throated Diver was seen. Back on dry land on Ardnave and the Lapland Buntings were still there, and a Merlin flew past too. Down on the estuary were some Turnstone and 80 Sanderling.
