Sunday 17th June

Martin and Elisabeth Fisher who won a week's stay on Islay when at the British Bird Fair last August and visited in October to coincide with the geese, returned again yesterday for another stay. This time with the days being longer and fingers crossed good weather, they will get to see Islay's other half, not that the weather was unkind to them last year! Today, Martin and Elisabeth had gone up round Ardnave Point and had a count of 25 Chough, and heard many Skylarks singing. They also heard a Cuckoo calling away, they saw several Stonechats and Wheatear too. On the shoreline, Sanderling were added to their list. Back down at Gruinart itself, they had Herons and Redshank out on the floods at the reserve.
