Yesterday had been the last full day for the group from Island Holidays who have been over for the past few days. At Bruichladdich, they had a small group of 5 Pale bellied Brents as well as 5 Purple Sandpipers. Later on down at Frenchman's Rocks/ Claddach they had a few Fulmars, Kittiwake and Razorbill and also 20 Gannets, Another immature Glaucous Gull was also seen there, with Peter saying that this was another gull to the one that has been lingering around at Machir Bay. A Merlin was added to their list close to Lossit Bay. Finally last night, they heard Woodcock roding in Bridgend Woods and heard a Tawny Owl calling along at Whin Park. Yeserday, Wally and Jude saw a Dipper on the River Laggan at Red Lodge on the high road. Up past Avonvoggie, Wally had a count of over 200 Skylark in a field there. James had a Yellowhammer in his garden at Mill cottage while Michal had heard 2 different Goldcrest singing. Down between Bridgend and the junction leading to Mulindry, there have been 2 Collared Doves often seen there recently.
