Friday 17th May

Another sunny day, not that I am complaining.... David and Jane yesterday had seen a Cuckoo over at Cluanach and heard several Grasshopper Warblers, in their garden they saw a Whitethroat. Down on the Oa today, Dave had a Spotted Flycatcher, 3 Blackcap and also 2 Sparrowhawk. Bob had been down at the new hide this afternoon, and had seen a Wood Sandpiper close to the hide. He also saw 6 Blackwits, a female Shoveler with ducklings, 12 drake Shoveler, 6 drake Wigeon and a pr of Pintail. I was speaking to some visiting birders from Worcester who have been having a great time, with watching our Choughs amongst their highlights. Another 2 from Dartmoor were telling me their highlight was seeing a Golden Eagle down on the Oa and also seeing Hen Harriers at different places around Islay.
