Just some of a small flock of Scaup that were close to the shore just outside Bowmore yesterday. Margaret had a count of 91 in total.
There was also a few Pale bellied Brent Geese on our way into Bowmore, but on our way home I did not notice them. Whether they are our flock that overwinters on Islay round the head of Loch Indaal, or whether they had flown on over to Ireland I am not sure!
This afternoon as I went up to the shed at the back of the wood, I noticed that there was a group of Rock Doves on the wing, moving along nicely, as the saying goes, "what's the hurry?" Well, following up behind was a Peregrine, not that he managed to catch any of them!
