Visitor Ian and his other half Janet had their last day here on Islay yesterday. They had seen a Golden Eagle eating prey over on the Oa, and good numbers of Twite as well. 3 Bullfinches and also some Yellowhammers were present around Kildalton. Thanks Iain and Janet, and will catch up with you in Rutland, come August at the Bird Fair!!! Yesterday, Mandy had seen 6 Whoopers fly in to Sanaigmore. On the beach, amongst the sea weed, were 2 Turnstone, 3 Ringed Plover and 3 Rock Pipits. Today, down on Machir Bay, Mandy had counted 36 Ringed Plover and a Sanderling. On the beach, there was a dead Razorbill, a casualty of the recent storms possibly.
