This image of a Golden Plover was sent to me this evening by local birder Becky Williamson. It was taken over on the Glenegedale lots.
Today we have noticed some Shelduck out with their broods of very young ducklings. There was a pair at Bruichladdich on Loch Indaal with their young swimming directly behind. There were also a few family groups at "smelly corner".
This evening before the midges came out we were looking at a new Sand Martin colony, there are at least 80 nests, so we will try to keep an eye on them. While we were there 45 Greylag flew overhead.
