Yesterday David & Jenny spent their time on the Oa, with lots of Skylarks, Meadow Pipits & Reed Buntings in a field beside Loch Kinnabus. Closer examination with the scope, and a male Lapland Bunting was present there too! Something spooked the flock and they took off , and although the most of them did return the "Lap" was not to be found again! Also near to the loch were 40 Whitefronts & 20 Barnies. On the loch itself, there were 8 Tufted Duck and pair of Goldeneye as well as a Merlin close by. On the road to the Oa, they had 40 Fieldfare and a couple of Redwing, and at Upper Cragabus they found a Yellowhammer. At Upper Killeyan, David & Jenny had 30 Twite & 4 Linnets. On the cliffs out towards the monument there were around 200 Fulmars.
Today, Bob had a Pectoral Sandpiper along with the Redshank & Greenshank on the floods at Gruinart.
