Sat 16th May

It's Saturday again, changeover day with the cottages, so I have to work with not much time for bird watching. The RAFOS group have left to go home now, and I believe that they had seen over 120 species for the week when they were here, but that is from Kennacraig and back to Kennacraig, not solely here on Islay! One late addition for them was a Spotted Flycatcher in the woods over beside The Woolen Mill. With the RAFOS group away, we have some other birders in now for a week, so all going well I can speak to them for some updates!
This evening, the wind has picked up and it is still dry outside, infact down at the Coastguard Houses, there is a ploughed field that was sown with grass seed today, and tonight it is like a dust bowl, even although it was rolled in behind the seed drill.
