Friday 29th June

Armin kindly sent this image of a male Hen Harrier, taken last week when we had blue skies, mind you the weather today has been a bit kinder!!! Still catching up with some sightings from when I was away, Carl had a Greenshank last Saturday down at Gortan, Mary had a family of Siskins on the bird feeders at Claddach down at Portnahaven last weekend. Bob & Lorna Young had a GND up at Sanaigmore, heard a Corncrake there too, as well as a Common Sandpiper were their highlights for last Saturday. On Sunday, up at Ardnave, their top birds were a White tailed Sea Eagle and later on a Shelduck with brood of ducklings. On Tuesday, down on the Oa, Michal saw a Short eared Owl.
