Sunday 27th March

Peter Gill returned to Islay for his "fix" yesterday. Peter had seen a Dipper at The Woollen Mill and then in the surrounding trees, 4 Bullfinches were present. Today, Peter had Kestrel over at Loch Ballygrant, a pair of Dabchick on Loch nan Cadhan, on Loch Finlaggan 2 Whoopers. Opposite North Lodge, Bridgend a mixed flock of 200 mainly Redwings and Fieldfare in the fields there, along the road at the road leading to Scarabus/ Octovullin 20 Twite were seen. Peter finally had a female Scaup off  Blackrock. This morning, Bob saw a pair of Siskin in his garden, the first he has had this year. There was a short sharp lightning storm through the night, and yet again it took our phone out, just as well we keep a spare phone to plug in. Today, the weather has been mixed with squally showers appearing out of nowhere, but this evening, the sun is streaming in the windows, well worth waiting for...
