Saturday 30th April

Another great day out here again, next thing folk will be wanting rain for the gardens, having said that I did see a sprinkler on in a garden on our way home from Bowmore this evening!

Goerge had heard a Cuckoo at Forlend yesterday, a couple of Sandwich Terns over Loch Indaal, in front of his house there was a Whitethroat, while up in the field behind his house a Wheatear was present. George also saw 4 Hares together and also 3 Roe Deer. Carl had a Sparrowhawk at Octomore, a large flock of Whimbrel at Gortan, a further 10 Whimbrel at Kintra. Whitethroats were present at Shorefield (George's house) and Kintra. Blackcaps and Chiffchaff were heard in the Bridgend Woods and Arctic Terns were seen at Bowmore and Kintra. 6 Dunlin were seen at Blackrock and a further 20 at Uiskentuie Strand while Common Sandpipers were present at Gortan. 2 Twite were at Kintra along with some Chough, there were also some more Chough at Uiskentuie.
