Sat 3rd May

The Owl cam has been interesting viewing, with the Owl herself moving herself and the eggs out of camera shot for the last few days, but she definitely has been more restless. A broken egg has now appeared, so one wonders if that is the first egg having been hatched. For those who have not seen it the link is compulsive viewing!
Stacey reported down from Oronsay to say that there are 4 calling Corncrake in the farmyard alone and several other further out! Sightings for the week included 4 Dotterel, 13 Whimbrel, 2 Pale bellied Brent geese and a single Carrion Crow. Obviously, for time of year, there are plenty of lambs and calves around too! SA
