Sunday 19th June

A better day today, although the mist covered the top of the crag for quite some time this morning, and this evening it looks quite settled, so possibly a good day again tomorrow, fingers crossed...... Bob and Martin had been over at Gartbreck today and had seen 45 species of birds. The highlights included 47 Eider with 30 young, 10 Shelduck with 10 young, 1 Cormorant, 6 Shag, 4 Turnstone, 4 Redshank, 1 Greenshank, 70 Bar tailed Godwit, 57 Oystercatcher, 20 Arctic Terns, pair of Common Tern. Out on the small rocky outcrops were 34 Black headed Gulls including 10 nest sites. A visitor had seen 3 Sanderling up at Sanaig this afternoon.
