Wednesday 20th March

Sorry folks a bit of a late entry, but you ain't been forgotten about.... Steve and his brothers yesterday had a Wheatear up at Sanaigmore, some Gannets and some Black Guiilemots offshore. Earlier on at Ballinaby, they had a Merlin and later on a Sparrowhawk at the reserve at Gruinart. Another visiting birder, yesterday had some Gannets on the sound of Islay and on our way out with him last night , we had a male Hen Harrier come off the hill past Sunderland. Coming home we had a Barn Owl at Foreland on a fence post. Michal the other night, had a Barn Owl on the reserve at Gruinart, and early this morning George had one fly past his hose at the edge of Bruichladdich. James had a White tailed Sea Eagle at the top of Loch Indaal, and later on,  another at Gruinart. After that Mary saw a second one at Gruinart, and I heard this evening of Steve and his brothers seeing 2 over towards Bunnahabhain, could they be different birds, must try to find when they were seen! The Bolton birders are back again, seeing a Merlin just up from Gortan this afternoon, and then they counted 26 Chough while down towards Machir Bay. Here at home , we had 41 Greylags in one of the fields
