Monday 3rd August

Got the rain tally through from Marsali this evening for July at Mulindry which is up behind Bridgend, the figure was 5.6"... back in 2010 it was 6.28 inches, say no more! Today Bob had been over at Gartmain where he counted 13 Barwits and also 59 Blackwits. Gary and Sam had seen 6 Golden Plovers and 3 Twite round at Saligo. While they were here having a cuppa and a blether with us, 3 Choughs also dropped by, 2 of them perched up on the "Sparrow terrace" on the garage, with the other sitting on the gutter directly above them, with a distant Raven calling over the crag!!! Mark from the Scottish Borders had a count of around 500 Gannets fishing off Frenchman's Rocks at Portnahavan, He also had a steady passage of Manx Shearwaters flying South
