Yesterday, David Shallcross of the Leigh Birders who are over on Islay at present e mailed through to say that he had been seeing a Ring necked Duck over on Loch Finlaggan on the past couple of days amongst the Tufted Ducks there. Today, Bob had seen a Barn Owl at Keppols and then down on Loch Skerrols, he counted 21 Shelduck. He too felt there were more Swallows and Wheatears around and 4 Wheatears hopping around in the field in front of his house. Nearer to his house, there are still 2 Siskins present. Here at home the pair of Redpolls are still around at the feeders along with at least 30 Goldfinches.
