Sunday 10th June

Another image through from Michal, he took this one of a young Ringed Plover a few days ago. This afternoon while we were out round Loch Gorm, we heard a few Corncrakes calling away, so possibly the males trying to attract the females and get a second clutch of eggs laid. The birds which we heard calling were on the same territories as earlier on, not new sites. We also saw 3 pairs of Lapwing at Coull with a total of 8 chicks all fairly young while over at Ballinaby there was a pair with 3 young which were much larger. Peter & Pia have returned and had 50 Common Scoter off Bruichladdich on Loch Indaal this evening. Earlier on at Frenchman's Rocks they had lots of Gannets, Guillemots, Manx Shearwaters, Kittiwakes and Fulmars.
