Monday 14th May
2 of the RAFOS visitors had been out for an early walk at 6am and not only had they heard the Corncrake, but one decided to cross the road in front of them.... Later on rond Loch Gorm "tall John" had a Short eared Owl and later on he had a Golden Eagle out over the crag. Mid afternoon over the old water mill a Kestrel was hovering eyeing some prey up. The 2 different Corncrakes here were both heard calling through the afternoon when I was out painting as it was dry, making the most of it before Thursday with more rain forecast! There was a Gannet fishing in Loch Indaal off Port Charlotte this morning while the Whimbrels were still in the barley fields at Rockside.
