Tuesday 6th August

Another very late entry, but here goes anyway.. On Monday, Peter and some of his old friends with whom he used to work with had been out and about.. Over at Finlaggan, they saw 4 Crossbills, and then down at the Bowling Green at Bridgend, they saw a Spotted Flycatcher. Today, while they were up here, they had seen a ringtail Hen Harier out over the Machir.

Louise was in touch with the figures from the Corncrake surveys carried out this year. The tally came to 53 calling males, down from last year, but at least a lot more than in the early 2000s when we only had single figures in calling birds heard...

James last night had seen a Barn Owl and today he had a Green Sandpiper both on the reserve at Gruinart.
