Friday 15th March

Mary and Nat had carried out a count on the floods at Gruinart today. The scores on the doors were as follows, 5 Snipe, 42 Mallard, 6 Wigeon, 12 Curlew, 7 Whoopers, 445 Teal, 4 Mute Swans, 3 Red breasted Merganser, 6 Pintail, 3 Heron, 20 Lapwing, 18 Greylag and 7 Shoveler. Marc Eden was in touch with some of his sightings from through his stay. Marc had the Red breasted Goose amongst the Barnies over at Gartbreck. Also at Gartbreck, Marc had an adult Glaucous Gull. Back on Tuesday, up at Ardnave he had a Wheatear, the first sighting of this year as far as I know here on Islay. Thanks Marc.
