Thurs 30th April

There were several of this new sub species of Oystercatcher on the shoreline on the East side of Loch Gruinart this morning, standing about on one leg in the rain, and they were not too keen to get their photos taken. Needless to say they did show their other leg off proir to flying away!

Later on, just below Craigens Farm there was a Sedge Warbler singing away in the reeds at the roadside, it was quite difficult to locate and I tried to get some images of it but it was almost impossible to focus on the bird rather than on the reeds round about. There were some good close sightings of a pair of Stonechats later on and finally on the platform above the hide, was a Song Thrush nearby on a branch of a tree. Looking over the salt marsh and there were still a few Barnacle Geese still present, mixed through a group of around 60 Shelduck.
