Yesterday, Martin climbed up Beinn Bheigier, our highest point on Islay, a mere 491 mteres at the trig point... an uphill climb especially as you start at sea level!!! At the start, down at Claggain Bay, Martin had GND out in the bay with a Kestrel overland. On his way to the top his birds included a male Hen Harrier, 3 Red Grouse and 7 Golden Plover. Today the wind has strengthened with the ferry diverting to Port Askaig and the plane this evening came in on time.
