Coming home on the ferry last night, James had a Whimbrel and 3 Sandwich Terns. At Kennacraig itself, an Otter was seen, wonder how many of the folk waiting on the ferry saw it? While they were en route during their kayak expedition, James and Eleanor saw several Dippers, Grey wagtails, Goosanders and also Jays, a bird that we do not have here on Islay. At journey's end in the Inverness area, a Red Kite was seen overhead.
Back to Islay, on Loch Indaal yesterday, Carl saw 2 Red throated Diver and 12 Scoter. At Bunnahabhain, Bob saw a Merlin and also 2 male Yellowhammer. Later on at Gartmain he had 7 Pintail and 200 Wigeon.
