Sun 20th June

This afternoon James had a walk round Ardnave Point. He saw a flock of 41 Bar tailed Godwit, a late entry and also good numbers of them too. On the water, he had a nursery of 21 Eider ducklings of differing sizes and ages.... Over on Nave Island, he saw a Greylag with a lot of white plumage, could this be the same goose that we had out in the field here at home earlier on this year? Over the water towards Nave Island were quite a few Terns fishing, both Arctic and Little. On the shoreline, James found a dead Puffin complete it's colourful beak. He also had a couple of Common Sandpiper, while on Ardnave Loch the Mute Swans were showing of their 6 cygnets. Several Tufted Duck were also present.
