Almost forgot to mention that Peter saw a Fieldfare on Sunday morning up at Gearach which behind Port Charlotte on the road to Kilchiaran. Yeserday, Tom and Jo had been down at Frenchman's Rocks where they saw 2 Great Skua, 22 Kittiwake, 1 Fulmar, 1 Black Guillemot while on the land a Merlin was seen. Up at Ardnave, they counted 64 Chough and also 2 Wheatear with a Little Grebe on Ardnave Loch itself. From the new hide at the reserve at Gruinart they had 13 Barnacle Geese and on their way down to the old hide, they had a Blackcap. Last night on their way back to Bowmore after meeting up with us at Gruinart, Margaret Nelson and her sister ("the 2 Canadian sisters") had a Barn Owl fly across the road in front of them at "smelly corner". Today, James 6 Pink footed Geese on the saltings at Gruinart.
