Monday 25th April

Yesterday, Bob saw a couple of Golden Eagles as well as a female Goshawk close to his house up the back of Port Charlotte.

This morning, Paul Graham had a White tailed Sea Eagle fly past Bruichladdich, heading North. A visitor reported in to George, who was manning the Islay Natural History Trust, that he had just seen a large bird of prey, bigger than a Buzzard, at the head of Loch Indaal. No doubt the same bird! Carrying on the same theme, we had a Merlin this afternoon over at Saligo, and a Golden Eagle on a thermal high above Coille. Back at home there was a Peregrine watching the Rock Doves. Later on a Kestrel was on the wing, hovering far out over the hill. There were also 9 Chough flying closer at hand too. A Pied Wagtail was briefly on the bird table, a first for us on the table!
