Monday 18th February

The Hampshire birders had a White tailed Sea Eagle at the top of Loch Indaal yesterday morning. Later on up towards the hills past Mulindry they had a Heron, a flock of 20 Fieldfare, with a Golden Eagle out over the moor. This morning they had a ringtail Hen Harrier close to "smelly corner" or Carnain to give its' correct name! New birders over for the week, Steve and family, on Saturday had seen 2 Golden Eagles from the Glen road. Yesterday at Bunnahabhain the Iceland Gull was seen. On Loch Indaal, 4 Slavonian Grebe, 4 Long tailed Duck as well as some Common Scoter and GNDs were present. Close to Bowmore they had seen a Glaucous Gull. Yesterday, Peter Roberts had a small flock of 30 Twite up towards Gortantoid. This morning Jane Griffiths had a Golden Eagle on a road kill Hare along from Uiskentuie, it was not having much peace from the traffic, but gave up in the end, for 2  pesky Hooded Crows to come along and then finally a Buzzard came for the remains!
