Tuesday 27th February
James like myself had been busy putting some nest boxes up on the reserve at Gruinart at the weekend. Also on the reserve, on Sunday, James saw a White tailed Eagle and then shortly afterwards a Merlin. Yesterday was Richard Smyth's final day of this present visit... he had a Merlin sitting on a roadside fence post as he drove over to Gruinart from Bowmore. While on the moorland trail at Gruinart, he saw a male and also a ringtail Hen Harrier. Finally as he drove over to Port Askaig in the afternoon to catch the ferry back to the mainland, Richard saw 2 White tailed Eagles flying East towards Jura... Hope you made it safely home Richard!!!!
