Friday 31st July

Apologies about there not being any entries on the blog for the last couple of days, but time just has run away, but hopefully "normal service" will resume again..

Gary, this morning had seen an Osprey fishing at the mouth of the River Sorn at Bridgend. Later on he emailed a list of birds seen by himself..
"Back at pull in by Donald Bell's. Osprey flying off over trees towards Loch Skerrols. Other birds about 137 Oystercatcher, 100 Curlew, 17 Whimbrel, 5 Dunlin, 6 Greenshank, 41 Bar tailed Godwit 3 Black tailed Godwit."

So I wonder what the tallies will come to for the rain that has fallen on Islay during July, but hopefully I will give you more on that tomorrow night. Matt Jackson's weather station recorded a wind speed of 56mph this morning at 2 pm...
