Friday 15th February

Our Hampshire birders had been up towards Knockdon where they saw Chaffinches, Brambling and some Yellowhammers. Along at the car park  at Ballygrant they had Blackbirds, Blue Tit, more Chaffinches and a Song Thrush. Down on the Sound of Islay, a Dipper was seen where a stream entered the Sound. A Grey Heron was seen on the shore with a GND and also a Black throated Diver out on the Sound itself. Anna today had a new "tick" today in seeing a couple of Pale bellied Brent at Bowmore. Lesley who is over for the week had a mixed Thrush flock in the wood at Gruinart consisting of Mistle Thrush, Song Thrush and Fieldfare. Lesley often visits Islay working as a "vol" at Gruinart, but this time is on holiday! Jane had 2 prs of Bullfinches in the woods at Bridgend today and also a Treecreeper there too. Back in the fields directly inn front of her house, Jane had a pair of Hares boxing this morning! This afternoon we saw a small flock of 6 Fieldfare over at the former Kilchoman School
