Sunday 20th February

There has been no sign of the sun today, but at least it has stayed dry. This evening the wind is picking up and the evening ferry has been diverted to Port Askaig.
Yesterday, George had a Coal Tit return to his feeders at his home, the first of this winter. Later on, George had been out and about and had a couple of ringtail Hen Harriers, just before Rock Mountain.
Our visiting birders today had been out over to Bunnahabhain and had an Otter in the bay there, the Iceland Gull was still to be seen while in the Sound of Islay was a Great Northern Diver. In the trees at Finlaggan, they saw a pair of Crossbills along with 3 young. Back on Loch Skerrols Whooper Swans and also 2 Coots were present.
Back here at home the solitary Siskin was at the feeder at the kitchen window this morning, and again in the afternoon.
