Couple days ago Gary had a golden eagle and male hen harrier on the Oa. Yesterday he saw a white tailed eagle flying over woods in Ballygrant Valley. Today he saw adult grey wagtail with two young on river at Woolen Mill. Cuckoo was heard at Ardtala.
Also a quick note that the next meeting of our informal group of Islay birders ("Bird Nerds") will be in the visitor center at Loch Gruinart Reserve next Tuesday (28th June) at 6:30pm. Everybody is welcome to join us. We might go for a short walk down to one of the hides.
