Fri 7th May

Another great day over here with the weather, perhaps there is a slight edge to a coolish air, but it is nice and sunny and dry with it too!
Yesterday Carl had a Little Tern at Blackrock, 4 Barnies at Pennycraig (the old blacksmith's workshop between Bowmore and Bridgend) and also a Whitethroat back in Port Charlotte. Today at Springbank, Carl had seen Reed Bunting and Snipe and had Willow and Grasshopper warbler singing.
Early this morning on Loch Gruinart itself, James had 187 Ringed Plover, 735 Dunlin and 9 Sanderling.
Our friends had been up at Loch Ballygrant and had seen the Ringed necked Duck again along with a few Tufted Duck. On Loch Indaal, they counted a flock of 65 Red breasted Merganser and also a Red throated Diver. Over the reserve at Gruinart, they had a sub adult Golden Eagle.
The star of "owlcam" has now laid her fourth egg.
