Friday 30th december

I have heard that it was Brendon Hollands who had seen the Green winged Teal at Gruinart. The previous day he had a Golden Eagle down on the Oa. Thanks for your birds, Brendon. Yesterday afternoon,  Mike Peacock had seen a Cackling goose over in the fields amongst other Barnies while friends of Mike had seen a Golden Eagle, Peregrine and also a Hen Harrier out behind Balllinaby. Dave Nevitt returned yesterday, for another "Islay fix" and had a Golden Eagle up beyond Coullabus. On Loch Indaal, close to Bowmore, Dave had 4 Long tailed Duck and 5 Slavonian Grebe. Today, Dave saw a Glaucous Gull, out from Whin Park over Loch Indaal. He also spotted Tystie off Bruichladdich. Coming back from Gruinart around midday, we saw the Cackling Goose present amongst the Barnies again at Ballinaby.
