Mon 30th June

Michal and his team had done the second count of this year's Corncrake survey here on Islay, and tallied up over 80 calling males, 15 more calling birds than last year. On the overall picture here on the West coast, only Tiree has also had an increase over the year, some of the other places were holding their own but some are definitely down. MS
I was speaking to Louise from Jura on Saturday, and she was saying that she had seen 10 Short eared Owls over on Jura that morning, the figure also included some youngsters too which was encouraging. LG
