Oops, almost forgot... Back on Tuesday, Margaret and myself went out for a quick run... Over at Ballinaby we counted a flock of 69 Lapwing, and just along the road, a pair of Stonechats with a male Hen Harrier along at Leek. Loch Skerrols had 21 Tufted Duck, a Dabchick, a Goldeneye and 2 Mute Swan. At smelly corner, 2 Whoopers were present with a 2 Mutes noted on the pools at carnain. Finally, there were some Redwings and Blackbirds seen just after Sunderland, in the scrub leading down to Loch Gorm. Today, Gary of Wild Islay Birding, had seen 10 Goldeneye, 6 Common Scoter, 2 Slavonian Grebe and a Long tailed Duck from Bowmore Pier. Back over at Caol Ila, Gary had watched 2 Otters and then, back at home, Gary had an imm. Golden Eagle over the garden and wood.
