Wenesday 8th June

Returning birders Nigel and Elaine Smith from Somerset are back here for a few days before heading up to Colonsay on Saturday. On Monday, they had seen 2 different male Hen Harriers on the high road as they drove down to Port Ellen. Later on, down on the Oa they saw another male Hen Harrier. Here at home, we saw one of the hen Pheasants out with her brood of 4 youngsters which were a decent size, rather than being "smouts" waiting to be predated! It has been quite foggy over here today, and muggy with it too...
