Wed 14th May

An image taken today of a Mute Swan along with her brood of 7 cygnets over at Carnain. She should be standing on a sandy spit but instead it is covered by seaweed that has been washed up and trapped there, and as time goes on it starts to rot and then smell, hence the locals call it "smelly corner"!
Catherine reported in to say that she had seen a single Pale bellied Brent Goose up at Ardnave and also that 9 Barnacle Geese are still present over on Nave island. CF
George was on the phone, to let me know that a Corncrake had been heard in Bruichladdich, the first there for about 5 years he believes. I, myself had 3 calling, within 1 mile of each other, while coming home from a meeting late in the evening. GJ
