Sun 10th Aug

Another image through from Michal, taken on the same day as yesterday's entry.

James has been out of the office and managed to get some birds on the move, through to me. On Wednesday, there was a Swift seen off the west coast of Islay, and at Gruinart reserve there were 2 Spotted Flycatchers. Up at Ardnave on Thursday, there was an Arctic Tern, and also an Arctic Skua while back on Loch Gruinart, Knot were seen in red plumage, as were Bar tailed Godwits. There were also 21 Black tailed Godwit, 2 Little Stints, and Sanderling along with Dunlin. On Saturday, up at Ardnave there were 37 Red breasted Merganser, 5 Turnstone, 5 Arctic Tern, 2 sandwich tern and another Swift. JRH
