This stoat in it's ermine coat was taken last weekend by Dan Brown. We do not often see many of them, here on Islay.
Malcolm had seen a couple of Barn owls in different places on his way home from Bowmore the other night.
Our other visitors, had seen 2 Peregrine Falcon yesterday, again at different places.
This morning, round at Ballinaby, there were 110 Lapwing and a large flock of over 400 Golden Plover all together in one field, with some starting to get their summer plumage. There were 2 Whooper swans down on the lochans at Loch Gorm, and at Blackrock there was a family of 7 Mute swans, 2 adults and 5 young.
