Sun 8th Aug

George had gone over today to Scarrabus and then walked on in to Loch Cam, up in the hills behind Scarrabus. On their way into Scarrabus, a good variety of birds of prey were seen including a Golden Eagle, Sparrowhawk, Hen Harrier and Buzzard. On Loch Cam itself a Red throated Diver was heard, and later seen flying off, 2 Heron were present, as were 2 Heron and also a couple of Whinchat. Back home on the shore at Bruichladdich, George had a few Turnstone resplendent in full summer plumage.
Up here at home, yesterday evening there 15 Chough out flying around, twisting and tumbling as they do!
