Saturday 13th April.

Yes, it had to happen, it has started to rain. Oh yes, and the wind has picked up, the evening ferry has been diverted to Port Askaig, and already the Islay ferries are on amber alert for tomorrow. The Fulmars can't be that bad at predicting the weather after all!! Right then, on to the bird blog....Bob had been out round the his home patch yesterday on the Rhinns and heard a Sedge Warbler, saw 2 Red Grouse, a Short eared Owl and male Hen Harriers at 2 different locations. Also yesterday afternoon, Liz Hathaway and Emily from RSPB had seen an adult White tailed Sea Eagle down on the Rhinns, a good chance of being the same bird that Bob had yesterday morning. This morning, I heard and then saw a Goldcrest in the wood here at home.
