Michal had braved the cold today, and took this image of a Purple Sandpiper up at Ardnave. In total, there was a flock of about 100, possibly a new "high" figure for Islay. MS
James had a second winter Glaucous Gull on Friday down beside the spit on Loch Indaal, and at Blackrock today, he had an adult Glaucous Gull.
This afternoon James, had a Woodcock being "stooped" by a Peregrine, but the falcon missed it's prey, so the Woodcock lives on for another day... James also had 2 Hen harriers, also this afternoon. JRH
