Wednesday 6th April

Another day weather wise like yesterday, but this evening the haar is in from the sea, and we cannot see the crag!

A day also for migrants, there was a male Blackcap in the garden at lunchtime, here at home, while over at Gruinart 30 House Martins were seen. Another migrant heading back is Stacey who has left Bird Island in South Georgia. Stacey has been working out there since August 2008 and has some tremendous images on her blog. She worked here on Islay with RSPB prior to heading to Bird Island.

The "Somerset duo" had a Merlin and a Hen Harrier before setting out today. Over at Bunnahabhain they saw an Otter again, 2 ringtail Hen Harrier, a Swallow, a Black Guillemot and 2 Great Northern Diver in the Sound of Islay. At Gruinart, they saw the House Martins and a male Hen Harrier. Later on up at Ardnave Loch they had 3 female Goldeneye and 24 Tufted Duck.
