Sunday 10th July

Yesterday evening a quick run round Loch Gorm provided not a lot but there were some  young Stonechats along the way, and round at Leek, a Hen Harrier was seen, and while we approached Loch Skerrols,  a Sparrowhawk flew across in front of us and on Loch Skerrols a pair of Mute Swans were present with their 4 cygnets. Here at home, late afternoon today the sun was shining so a wee look over the game crop was quite productive, with young Stonechats spotted, young fledged Garden Warblers seen on the hemlock, fledged Goldfinches feeding on thistle heads, some Whitethroats were seen too with Barn Swallows swooping down over the pond, a great sight to see, especially seeing as many fledged youngsters, all the effort has been worthwhile!!!!
