Saturday 6th April

Today, Malcolm saw a European Whitefronted Goose amongst some Greenland Whitefronts while over at Kilchiaran, only the 8th record for Argyll and the 5th for Islay. Dave, on Thursday had a Goldcrest on the Oa. Today on Loch Indaal from Bowmore, Dave had 3 Slavonian Grebe, all in summer plumage, 7 GND, 8 Goldeneye  and 25 Eider. Thanks to Clive Hancock for some sightings over the past week. Clive was over on holiday for the week having won the "Geese a break" free draw organised by the Islay and Jura Tourism and Marketing Group along with Calmac at the Bird Fair last August. Other contributors of late have been Mick Durham and also Edmund Fellowes. Thanks to you all, much appreciated.
