Sunday 1st May

Another month in, a mere 2.1" of rain fell, although it seemed a lot more!!! Today, Mary heard a Corncrake calling down in Portnahaven, close to the Church. She also heard a Grasshopper Warbler nearby. Bob this morning had seen an adult White tailed Sea Eagle flying over Carn at Port Charlotte and  saw 25 Golden Plover in the fields at Octomore. Helen Brown had a pair of Siskin on her feeders at Ardnahoe. Here at home there were 2 Greenfinches on our feeders as well as a Redpoll . Out on the sea, towards Coul Point, Margaret has seen some small groups of 4- 5 Gannets flying North and South. Malcolm had seen 5 Pale bellied Brent Geese at Gortan at midday and then around 50 flew South past Bruichladdich around 4pm.
