Mark Dawson sent me through this e mail earlier on this evening...
"I arrived on Islay today for a couple of days of birding so have been following
your blog in recent weeks to look for the best areas...
Thought you might
like to know that at Ardnave today there were 25 Choughs (23 were together
in 1 flock on the ground just before I got back to the car!). There was also a
flock of around 40 Twite."
