After the thunder and lightning that we had last night, today turned out a great day again. The rain last night down at Bridgend and Bowmore was really heavy, while up here it was just the edge of the shower... Down at Upper Cragabus on the Oa today, Clive had a male Hobby. Further on down on the Oa, Dave had 3 Siskins on the reserve today. This evening, here at home there were a couple of House Martins, the first that I have seen here this year. Visitors from Bearsden in Glasgow had seen a Corncrake over at the reserve at Gruinart yesterday.
