Wednesday 20th May

On Monday, Gary had taken a walk out to Killinallan Point and along through the dunes there. He saw many Pied Wagtails and several Stonechats. On his way back down the road towards Craigens, at Bun an Uillt, Gary saw a Great Skua was chasing the waders there. Yesterday over at Bunnahasbhain, Gary had a Golden Eagle flying over from Jura to Islay. Down in the Community Garden at Bridgend, Gary had several Blackcaps singing and also a pair of Bullfinches calling there too. The Bowland birders yesterday had seen a Peregrine, and a pair of Raven on a walk out from Machir Bay. Also present were 2 Chough, plenty of Skylarks and Meadow Pipits. Back at the car park at Machir Bay, a Corncrake was calling away, and up past the Coastguards in the barley field, a Pink footed Goose was present along with some Greylags, one of them had a red neck collar on. The Bowland birders could not make out the lettering and we went down later on, but no luck either...
