Saturday 20th February

Laurence Reeve who has been over this past week sent through some of his top birds while he was here. Back on Tuesday, he had seen 24 Chough up at Ardnave with a further 22 down at Machir Bay. Over the flats at Gruinart, Laurence had a juv. White tailed Eagle. On Wednesday he saw the Glaucous Gull at Machir Bay and also the Iceland Gull at Ardnave Point. On Thursday, he had 500 Golden Plover over the flats at Gruinart. As ever, many thanks to the various visiting birders who have sent through their sightings to the blog. The Oriole birders, I believe had seen a total of 11 Golden Eagles while they were here.
Yesterday, we went looking for the Yellowhammers over near to Kildalton, the weather was grim to put it politely, but we managed to see 10 at least. This morning, we had a new garden tick, a Raven, it had the brass neck to steal some banana cake which Margaret had put out....
