This morning the Peregrine was sitting out on top of the crag again, waiting and looking for the Rock doves to fly past, will they never learn? Down to Bowmore at lunchtime or thereabouts, and at the top of Loch Indaal on the merse at the back of the market, there was a large group of Greylags resting up, how many I could not say for sure. Further on, with the tide being out, there were quite a few Godwits to be seen, while on the water itself there were some Eider duck to be seen coming out of their eclipse plumage. Back over the crag this evening, and there were several Chough out tumbling about as they do in their flight. Later on some of them were flying round about the ruin of the former church, being vocal with it too!
