Red is the colour. Especially when it comes in the form of a kite. Red kites are an uncommon visitor to Islay, but in the last few days I have received lots of sighting from around Islay. Yesterday a blue tagged bird was seen near the Saniag turn on Loch Gorm (presumably the bird seen on Colonsay). Also on Tuesday Bob reported an untagged red kite and a goshawk over Rockside. Then today Bob also found another red kite at Ardtalla. It looks like there are at least 3 red kites on Islay at the moment.
