Saturday 23rd April

This morning, Armin Grewe who has been over for Walkislay, heard a Corncrake down at the reed bed below the Coastguard cottages. Bob and Martin heard 3 Whimbrel calling while they were down at Frenchman's Rocks this morning. Today Malcolm had 3 Whimbrel fly past Bruichladdich, late afternoon. Earlier on he had heard a Cuckoo at Foreland. Along in front of the Distillery at Bruichladdich, Malcolm had 2 Purple Sandpipers and 2 Arctic Terns over Loch Indaal. Yesterday, in front of Loch Gorm House he counted 40 Pale bellied Brent Geese, and 2 Sandwich Terns fishing out in front of his house. There were 2 Arctic Terns also present. Carl heard a Sedge Warbler at Bridgend Merse yesterday.
