Not much birding was done yesterday, as it was our annual local Agricultural show here on Islay. The weather held out, and although it was overcast with a few spots of rain at lunchtime, fortunately the midges kept away. The only bird reported on Thursday was the Kingfisher being seen on the Sorn again. The weather as forecast has broken down this afternoon, but there were 51 Swallows and House Martin flying around, just after breakfast, and later on there was a female Siskin on the feeders right beside the kitchen window. There were also several young Blue Tits there too, as well as some Great Tits. Talking of youngsters, we saw some young Goldfinches on Thistle heads on Wednesday when going into Finlaggan.
