Saturday 14th February

Gone from an early entry to rather a late entry tonight, sorry folks.... Earlier this week Paul Hathaway had seen 12 Bullfinches down in Bridgend woods. Over at Gruinart he had seen a Barn Owl along the flats and then another Barn Owl just before Craigfad, below Port Charlotte, thanks Paul. Dave Protherough from Kayak wild Islay had been returning home this afternoon on the ferry and had seen 2 White tailed Sea Eagles on Glas Eilean with a Golden Eagle flying high in the same locality. Other visitors reported spotting a few Canada Geese over on the islands between Islay and Jura. Mick Hemingway, the winner of the competition at the Bird Fair arrived on Islay today for a week and had a great start seeing Choughs. He too had seen the birds that Dave had seen from the ferry, so was well impressed...
