Thursday 17th July

Another great Summer's day again.... Speaking to Bob last night who was saying that he had a mixed flock of wee birds on the grass field out in front of his house, he reckons around 100 or so birds in total, about the biggest half were House Sparrows, with the others being Linnets, Twite, Goldfinches and a few Greenfinches. Mandy one of the "vols" at Gruinart was saying to me this morning, that the other day up at Ardnave she saw a Great Skua taking a Shelduck... Down at Bruichladdich this evening there was a pr of Shelduck proudly showing off their 8 ducklings. Back at Loch Gorm the Mute Swans still have got their 6 youngsters in tow...
