Yvonne McCrone who lives over close to Otterferry has been over on Islay for a few days , and Yvonne wrote to tell me that she had seen at least 12 Whimbrel on the newly cut field at Cornabus. Have there been any more sightings to confirm this? They were there yesterday and today. We also had one staying a while at Otterferry before I came over here. . by the sound of news coming through, I believe that there were Whimbrels that she had seen..
Gary had been out and about today as well,
sightings from today, 47 Bar tailed Godwits & 2 Black tailed Godwits
amongst the curlew and oystercatchers. Male Hen Harrier quartering the moorland
