Tuesday 28th August

Louise phoned over today from Jura... on her journey down from her house at Gatehouse, up past Craighouse down to the ferry at Feolin, she had a "raptor road trip". 4 Buzzards, 5 Hen Harriers, 2 Peregrines, 2 Short eared Owls and then a White tailed Sea Eagle over the Sound of Islay while she was waiting for the ferry! One of the Peregrines flew from Jura over to Islay. John Lee, a visiting birder over here for the week had seen the following today. 40 Curlew at Port Charlotte, a Razorbill on Loch Indaal off Port Charlotte, around 60 Chough, 1 ringtail Hen Harrier and a Buzzard all at Ardnave. Yesterday off Port Charlotte, John had several Kittiwakes.
