Sun 27th July

With this good weather, it is not just us humans that want to loaf about in the water, but also the Seals down at Portnahaven this afternoon, were not very active either!

With James back, and after clearing his desk, and answering all those e mails, he has had some time for seeing a few birds through the week. Earlier in the week, he had 35 Chough up at Ardnave, at Gruinart reserve itself, he had 2 Hen Harriers, Whinchat, Wheatear, which are now on the move. Later on in the week, he saw the Peregrine out and about, and also 2 Redpoll. He also saw lots of Ringlet butterflies, and also Painted Lady butterflies too, as well as a Lizard, all making the most of this spell of warmer weather. JRH

Here at home, we noted observing a couple of Tiger Moths out in the sun yesterday, while in the afternoon there was a Peregrine overhead.
