Sun 4th May

With there being high tides this week, Michal reported in to say that there were a lot of Waders to be seen on Loch Gruinart, mostly, Dunlin, Ringed Plover and Redshank, but there were also 2 Pale bellied Brent Geese to be seen as well. On the floods themselves, 9 Black tailed Godwit were resting up. Certainly not the big fall that was noted last year, but they are still trickling through. Michal also heard both Sedge Warbler and Whitethroat calling. James saw a Merlin over at Saligo earlier this evening. MS & JRH
The Barn Owl on the Owl Cam now appears, we think to have hatched 2 of her clutch of eggs, early days yet! The Lapwing out in the field here at home was seen this evening with young around her, I wonder how long it will be before there are predated upon. IKB
