Saturday 9th July

A better sort of a day after last night's rain. Yesterday, David Barr had seen a Golden Eagle while down on the Oa, a new Islay tick for David.  Yesterday evening, Martin had seen a Short eared Owl along the high road. Late last night/ early this morning we did our stint on the Corncrake survey, and believe it or not, we had heard more than we thought we might have done considering the weather recently. We did not hear some where we heard them calling on earlier surveys. In all, we had heard 7 in total, our best count for the year... I will keep you up to date once the figures are complete, but overall, I think the tally will not be as high as last year....
