Thurs 17th June

With the weather still holding so good, James took the opportunity and decided yesterday to head over to Colonsay for the day. It actually turned out to be a visit to Oronsay, as the tides were really good. On the way to Colonsay, from the ferry at the mouth of the Sound of Islay/ Loch Tarbert on Jura, a Minke Whale was seen, it surfaced 7 times! A Puffin was in the same area, 2 Great northern Diver in summer plumage and 10 Manx Shearwater were also seen from the ferry, while on Oronsay, James had a Red throated Diver.
