Mon 15th March

Visitors over on Islay for the week contacting us late this afternoon with some birds they had seen today. This morning they had been down in Bridgend Woods and had 2 pair of Treecreeper, 2 pair of Dipper at different places on the River Sorn, and at The Woolen Mill a Grey wagtail. In the woods again they had a Tawny Owl, heard a Goldcrest, and at one point in the tree canopy, had around 80 Redwing and Fieldfare carrying out "pre migration chatter". In the afternoon over on Loch Gruinart, they had 2 Greenshank, a Peregrine flying past close to them, and finally down in a field beside the Coastguard cottages, there were 80 Golden Plover.
