Sat 4th April

Ken Hall, our birder from Aberdeenshire returned home today, and was happy to see a Golden Eagle just before he left to go down to catch the ferry.
Back to yesterday, and George Jackson, while he was out looking for the elusive Gyr Falcon, was parked up at Ardnave Loch and had a good sighting of a Peregrine attempting to get a duck out of the water, but the duck was sensible enough to dive under the water at the last moment and avoid being caught. The Peregrine gave up after several attempts and went and rested up on a fence post close to George. George also had a male Merlin down on the flats at Gruinart.
