Wednesday 16th April
Better late than never... I went over to Colonsay and then with the tide being out over the strand to Oransay, so once I came home, I was tired out and did not do the blog, sorry... On Tuesday down at Portnahaven Mary had a Grasshopper Warbler and at Gruinart, James had a Ruff, 6 White Wagtail and also noted the fall of Willow Warblers that Bob had too. On Colonsay/ Oransay and going over there on the ferry, we saw the following birds, Black Guillemot, GND, Greylags, Barnacle geese, flock of over 300 Golden Plover, Golden Eagle, Rock Doves, Kittiwake, Skylark, Chough and also 2 Snipe "chipping" at Scalascaig. The weather out with the rain only coming on near the end.
