Monday 4th June
Yesterday evening, just after 6 pm, Ryan and Vickie from Liverpool saw an Osprey fishing in Loch Gruinart, and then it was chased by Shelducks. Also on the reserve, they had been hearing and also seeing the Corncrakes. Up at Ardnave they had 15 Chough, back on the reserve they had a couple of Barn Owls and a male Hen Harrier. On Loch Gruinart, they had 2 Arctic Skuas and down at Bruichladdich, another male Hen Harrier. Here at home this evening, a Buzzard was getting mobbed by a Lapwing, the Buzzard was carrying something in its' talons, could it have been a young Lapwing? There were also 2 or 3 Jackdaws mobbing the Buzzard too, and then a Kestrel came along and saw the Buzzard off.
