Friday 14th August
Earlier this week, one evening on our way up to Ardnave, a Merlin zipped across the road in front of us. Mary, yesterday morning, had seen a Tree Sparrow down at Portnahaven. Bob, this morning also spotted a Merlin close to his house up behind Port Charlotte. This afternoon, over the big crag, a Peregrine and a Raven were having a tussle with each other, no real winner as in the end they flew off in different directions...and then this evening a Sparrowhawk was sitting on the garden wall for a few minutes before flying off in the hope of catching a Starling for its' supper!
