If you are over on Islay this week, come along to the Islay Natural History Trust's visitor centre tomorrow night at 7.30pm. David Mason will be giving an illustrated talk on Wild Breckland. This is an area of heathland on the Norfolk / Suffolk border, well known for Stone Curlews.
Back to Islay's birds and James had a Wheatear while up at Ardnave today. As I write this entry, there are around half a dozen Fieldfares atop the trees in the wood here at home, basking in the evening sun. Almost forgot, the temperature was just into double figures again this afternoon....although there is still that cold wind blowing in from the East.
