Mon 14th April

Here is an image of a Canada Goose, hutchinsii sp, kindly sent in by Steve Percival who was over last week. As some you may recall Steve did his PhD thesis on Barnacle Geese here on Islay, and has returned annually to ring more Geese and to monitor them.
The weather remained dry, cold but sunny today, allowing the folk taking part in Walkislay to enjoy some more walks here on Islay, infact we were only 1 short of 70 folk walking at the same time. Good going, with many new faces, one from Canada, no not the Goose, another from Holland as well as some new walkers from around the UK ,along with several returning folk mixing in the ones participating from here on Islay itself.
