Sat 7th June

Not exactly breaking news, but some late news from earlier on this week, is that a Minke whale had been seen off Islay, in fact it was seen going round the green buoy beside Carraig Fhada over at Port Ellen!
Away from Islay now, and over to Louise in Jura who was in touch saying that she has been seeing a lot of raptors of late, including a Kestrel in full summer plumage looking rather smart, early yesterday morning. She has not seen any sign of any Shelduck young out yet, but the Mute Swan at Craighouse is proudly showing off 5 cygnets. Out on the Small Isles off Craighouse, there appear to be quite a lot of Greylag with goslings to be seen. LG
