Some visiting birders who are over for the weekend have been well impressed with our Islay birds. They had the good fortune to see the Gyr Falcon down at Portnahaven, over at Gruinart they saw the Lesser Canada Goose, hutchinsii on the flats on the reserve. Up here at Kilchoman, they had seen a couple of Golden Eagle and a Peregrine. One of the Eagles was later getting mobbed by a Raven. This image is one of these sub adult birds on the wing. For a few moments it was on the ground, those images I took were not that great!
