Friday 22nd June

Some sightings through from earlier on this week from a group over with Peter Clements. On Saturday, down at Portnahaven, they saw the Arctic terns as well as 3 Sanderling, 4 Turnstone, and a Dunlin.On Sunday in the Gruinart/ Killinallan/Ardnave area, they had a Golden Eagle, Twite, Wheatear with young, flock of 12 Chough, 4 Corncrakes calling and a Spotted Flycatcher. Monday over on Jura, another Golden Eagle, a sub adult White tailed Sea Eagle, 3 Hen Harriers, 2 Short eared Owls, a Grasshopper Warbler and also a large female Otter were their highlights. Thanks to Jennifer for sending the sightings through. By the way, as in keeping with other places the weather today has been poor, the mist has hung over the crag all day and the evening flight from Glasgow was cancelled, not sure about the morning flight, probably cancelled too!
