Tuesday 5th April

Another mixed day with the weather today, it managed to stay dry this morning, although it was wet and windy through the night. It has reverted back to that again this afternoon and now this evening, at least it is not cold!

Catherine sent through some sightings from the Oa, 73 Fulmar, 1 Peregrine Falcon, 2 Buuzard, 1 Dipper, 3 Chough, Wheatear, Golden Eagle, 18 Tufted Duck, 263 Greenland Whitefronts, male Hen Harrier, male Goldeneye, Redshank and Lapwing were also present. The "Somerset duo"made the most of this morning and went over to Bunnahabhain where they saw a dog Otter eating a crab! The Iceland Gull was still present, as were several Great Northern Diver and Red throated Diver in the Sound of Islay. They also saw a Red legged Partridge in the Ardnahoe area. On Loch Gorm, a family group of 5 Whooper Swan were seen and also 3 Hen Harrier around the Loch. They also had a male Hen Harrier close to where they are staying.
