Thursday 16th April
Down at Portnahaven this morning, Mary had a Grasshopper Warbler. Another glorious day , great for the folk on the walks today. Armin had been on Tam's walk out from Ardlistillery and out over the hills, there was a distant Golden Eagle. They also had a Buzzard on the wing too closer to them with many Skylarks singing away. Down at Kinnabus on the Oa, Dave today had 2 Tree Sparrows, at least 4 Willow Warblers and a male Blackcap. Yesterday Margaret had a Wheatear out on top of the Sanctuary cross out towards the War graves cemetery. Also yesterday, there was a report through to Gruinart of a Grey Plover amongst the flock of Golden Plovers over at Ballinaby, but not heard any more of this sighting today.
