Sunday 9th June

Danny did not manage to break the magic 100 on his recent trip to Islay,only 95 species noted. He  had not seen Grey Wagtail, Long tailed Tit or Turnstone... roll on next May! Thanks to Danny for sharing his images with us along with his sightings. Jeremy and Kim, the other day had seen 30 Dunlin along at Saligo. Malcolm had heard a Blackcap singing down at the Community Garden at Bridgend early this morning. On our way up to Sanaigmore around midday, we had a cracking view of a Golden Eagle out over the hill behind Coille. This evening going up the gully behind our house there were at least 25 Rock Doves flying around in small groups, more than seen at similar times in other years, possibly as there are no Peregrines around! We also had a Cuckoo fly past when we were there too. The corncrake count last night/ early this morning which we carried out tallied out at 11 calling birds. Conditions were good, as there was hardly any wind which means that there was no noise from sea....
