Armin sent through the following birds seen down South, not on Islay....
sighting this morning: At the wooden footbridge crossing the canal during my
daily morning walk I spotted three Grey Wagtails. Usually I only see one or two
at that spot. An invader from somewhere else? Will there be a fight over the
morning, a Heron stayed put on the other side of the canal when I walked past,
usually they fly away when I approach.
Today, a Heron
flew past me quite close along the canal. It was coming the other way,
flying along the canal. When it spotted me it seemed like it was briefly
pondering, should I turn off to get away from the human or just continue along
the canal? It decided to continue along the canal, giving me a nice view of it
