Thurs 24th April

The Black tailed Godwits that James had at Gruinart have moved on, but I found this one along with another bird up at Ardnave Loch. It was clearly showing its colour rings, yellow over green on its right leg and orange with red on the lower tarsus on its left leg. There was no sign of any metal rings, but details have been sent to BTO and hopefully they will be able to tell us more about this bird and where it was rung and when. IKB
Maria saw the Iceland Gull over at Port Ellen when going on the ferry on Tuesday. MMcC
There were quite a noticable increase in the number of migrants both seen and heard whilst helping with the Thursday walk at RSPB Loch Gruinart reserve. In the woodland itself, there were more Willow Warblers, and some Bluebells to be seen, there was also a Coal Tit. There also appear to be more Sand and House Martins here on the week, but still not a large number of Swallows yet. MAB
