Saturday 18th June

Michal sent this image through this morning, not taken today as we certainly have not had blue skies, just grey and overcast along with a dollop or two of the wet stuff...

New visitors arriving today had an Osprey close at hand as they left Kennacraig, and just as the "Finlaggan" (our new ferry) was leaving West Loch Tarbet 4 Red throated Divers were seen too. Michal this morning had seen the Curlew along with her 2 chicks in the same field as the visitors had seen them in yesterday. This evening in the wood here at the house, a Willow Warbler was busy feeding her fledglings while earlier on on the bird table the Great Tit family were in full flow eating away good style. By the way, that Corncrake was calling away last night, too close for comfort, closing the bedroom window does not shut it up 100%... and it is already calling again this evening!!!
