Thursday 11th April

Yesterday Peter had taken the ferry up to Colonsay. From the ferry he noted seeing Gannets following a fishing boat, also some Kittiwakes too, but no Fulmars. In total, he also had 12 Razorbill, 4 Guillemot and 4 GND as well as a single Manx shearwater. He also managed over to Oransay and commented on the lack of cover for any returning Corncrakes, quite simply, bare with these cold winds just like Islay! Jeff from Glasgow had 2 Wheatear and also a dead Glaucous Gull at Saligo yesterday. Today, Jeff had a White tailed Sea Eagle fly over his car down close to Foreland. On Loch Indaal, there was a female Goldeneye. Later on, a walk in Bridgend Woods produced a Willow Warbler, Treecreeper,  a Hedgehog with the 2 Grey Wagtail on the River Sorn. There were a few Fulmars wheeling about in front of  the crag the other day, a wee change coming for the weekend, hope it's not too drastic as Walkislay starts on Sunday!!!
