Monday 27th May

After last night's dollop of rain, it turned out to be not that bad a day... Yesterday Geoff had a male Hen Harrier out on the Rhinns, today he saw 3  Golden Eagles down on the Oa. Later on he met in with Dave and Danny and in the wood here they had a Cuckoo, a Spotted Flycatcher, Wood Warbler, Greenfinch, Goldfinch, Siskin and Redpoll with a Chough flying overhead! Danny had seen a Razorbill on Loch Indaal, just out from Bruichladdich. and this year Danny commented on seeing more Linnets around and hearing more Sedge Warblers as well. Out below the Gaelic Centre at Bowmore, Danny had 6 Whimbrel with some Curlews also present. Yesterday, the Blackbirds fledged at Bob's, with 4 reared. Bob was also saying that at the open day at Bruichladdich Distillery yesterday, a Peregrine flew over, wonder how many of the folk present saw it!
