Thurs 22nd May

Finally this evening, the weather has broken down with the rain coming down as I write, but for how long will it last and how much will it come too?
The Osprey was seen over at Loch Gruinart the other day, again carrying a fish. Earlier this evening I received a phone call to say that a pair of Short-eared Owls have been seen today on the Rhinns of Islay. Also this afternoon I had a Spotted Flycatcher in the woods behind the Woolen mill. IKB
Catherine had noted the following while doing a count on Loch Gruinart, 20 Eider, 1 Common Sandpiper, 207 Oystercatcher, 1 Little Tern, 5 Arctic Tern, 11 Ringed plover, 84 Shelduck, 16 Curlew and 30 Dunlin. She also had a Peregrine Falcon too. CF
