Tuesday 5 May
Thanks Dave for this lovely picture of the dotterel on The Oa yesterday, posing beautifully!
Alistair is back in Portnahaven for his holidays, yesterday his highlights included a peregrine, 4 common sandpipers a grasshopper warbler reeling by the church and a pair of choughs. Forgot to add yesterday that I heard a corncrake on Saturday in the fields behind the church in Portnahaven, and Paul Graham heard a corncrake at Machir Bay yesterday while an other was heard near the old hide at Gruinart.
