Tuesday 31st January

A bit of an early entry tonight, but as I am going out to the bird nerds "Dinner", I thought is might be a good move to put the blog first... Yesterday, Gary had seen a White tailed Eagle over at Caol Ila. Out on the Sound of Islay, he counted 11 Shag with 3 Otters present as well. Later on, on his way up towards Bunnahabhain, Gary saw a male Kestrel and finally, up towards Scarrabus he had a male Hen Harrier. After the windy day yesterday, it has been a lot calmer here today, but better keep quiet as the wind is due to pick up again come Thursday...so the lull before the storm??? Oh, yes I did do some work in the garden in my shirtsleeves, not bad for January, watching 40+ Chough flying past as well!!!
