Thursday 16th June

Yesterday, Phil Catton had seen a Turtle Dove down at Kinnabus on the Oa. Phil has just arrived here on Islay and is Dave's assistant on the RSPB reserve at the Oa. George and Pat Jackson had seen a pair of Grey Wagtail on the River Sorn with a Garden Warbler singing away nearby. Mid afternoon, they saw a male Hen Harrier fly across the road close to Rockside road end, it then flew on towards Loch Gorm. This afternoon, here at home within a few minutes we heard a Cuckoo calling down in the wood, heard a Corncrake calling in the garden and then a "flypast" by 35 Chough, vocal as ever! This evening, just been out and rescued a couped ewe, got there before the Ravens, the ewe was fine and a moment or two later, her lambs were in for their supper....
