This image was sent in last night by one of our visitors, of a Mute Swan with her 9 cygnets in Tarbert Harbour yesterday afternoon.
Today James had a Snow Bunting on the flats at Gruinart, he has had them in June before he assures me!
Yesterday George had 3 Great Northen Diver on Loch Indaal, close to the shore, "rather scruffy looking" according to George who thought that they were probably young birds from last year. Today on Loch Indaal, he had a pair of Greylags with brood of 4 goslings in tow, the first George has seen on Loch Indaal this year. He was also saying that he has 5 House Martins at home, not as many as last year. The male Hen Harrier did a fly past in front of his house today also!
Here at home this afternoon, while I was out in the garden, there were a pair of Cuckoos to be seen, one on a fence post in the garden, and the other on the garden wall, the camera was in the house, so there is no proof for you only my word!
