Wednesday 19th June

Peter had been over on Jura today, his main birds were as follows. 5 different singing male Whinchat, 1 south of Feolin with the others all beyond Lagg. 2 Short eared Owls were seen, one  below Feolin and the other past Lagg. Hen Harriers, both females/ young males seen below the ferry and also past Lagg.  A dark phase Arctic Skua seen flying over the hills past Inverlussa, raising the question could they still be breeding on Jura? Finally at Lussa itself a Spotted Flycatcher was seen. Back on Islay Peter saw a Dipper on the River Sorn close to the Woolen Mill. Mid afternoon, we had a ringtail Hen Harrier out at Mulindry.
