Tuesday 18th August

Another beautiful day along with a cracking sunset to end the day off... mind you there was mist/ sea haar this morning before it burnt off... The flock of around 50 Swallows appear to have flown on as there to be only a few around today and there was a Sand Martin there as well, wonder if it was the same one that was here on Sunday afternoon??? Down at the reedbed, this side of the Coastguards, this afternoon a Sparrowhawk was present flying along, following the stream as it wends its' way down to Machir Bay. Margaret had seen a couple of Peregrines flying over the top of the crag, they then continued on towards Rockside. The rest of the day has been spent getting bits and pieces together, getting the van packed ready for the off tomorrow morning for our trip down to the Birdfair. Dave is already down staying with family in Norfolk while Bob, Margaret and myself set out tomorrow and should arrive ready for a late dinner with Andy arriving down from Glasgow by train on Thursday evening. So if you see us all looking a bit tired on Friday, maybe jetlag has caught up with us all, but come along and meet up with us, we will try not to yawn at you, honest!!! James and co will be looking after the blog over the next few days while I am away, so feel free to send any sightings to james.how@rspb.org.uk
