As I write, the cuckoo is calling outside!
James has just been on the phone with some sightings over the last couple of days. Yesterday, in front of the hide there were 2 Otters, one of the Mute swans was out with 6 cygnets, 37 Dunlin, 2 Gadwall and a single Whooper swan. Down at Carnain, on the pools, the Mute swan was out with her young. It will be interesting to keep an eye on them to see how many they eventualy rear, as last year, if memory serves me right they finished up with only one. Today, James counted 83 Ringed Plover and 245 Dunlin on Loch gruinart itself. JRH
