Wed 12th May

Michal had a Blackcap in the wood at Eresaid, this is the wood just down from Gruinart.
James today had seen the Green winged Teal on the floods along with 3 Whooper Swan. He also heard a Mistle Thrush and had a count of 1570 Dulin on the estuary at Gruinart.
Carl had 51 Whimbrel resting up at Gortan (beside the coal yard), 3 Sanderling and a Dunlin on the Uiskentuie Strand while at "smelly corner" 300+ Dunlin were present. Round on the small island in front of the Gaelic College at Bowmore, Carl had 11 Arctic Tern as well as 10 Black headed Gulls sitting on nests.
Back at home this evening, and I have just seen my first House Martin, have they just been late in returning to here?
