Wed1st Sept

This is the Basking Shark which we saw last month when we were out with DJ. He had seen 3 in the Sound of Islay at the weekend as well as a White tailed Sea Eagle overhead. I was hearing from Peter Roberts last night, that back in July when he was on the ferry between Coll and Tiree that he had a count of 28 Basking Sharks. There certainly have been seen a lot this summer, with good counts, not just in ones and twos!
Obviously another month is past, and the rainfall only tallied through at 2.6", another dry month. We are well down on last year, but there is still time to make it back up...
James today had done a count of 1691 Greylag Geese on Ardnave and Gruinart. He also saw 2 Peregrine, 2 Greenshank and had 14 Black tailed Godwit up at Ardnave.
