Sunday 2nd June

Danny kindly gave me this image of a Spotted Flycatcher which he took earlier in the week. Martin was in touch to correct my statement from last night, it was Golden Plover not Dotterel that he had seen, sorry Martin! He also had 2 pr of Whinchat and about 10 Stonechats on his walk as well as a Common Sandpiper on Loch Uigeadail which is up in the hills above Ardbeg. Today, Danny had a Dipper on the River Sorn and another visiting birder saw Sanderling down on Machir Bay. Other visitors from Oxfordshire had seen a Golden Eagle down on the Oa , seen a ringtail Hen Harrier, a GND just off the Singing Sands all today and had heard a Corncrake calling up behind Machir Bay yesterday evening, so they are well pleased. This evening round at Ballinaby, there were several small family groups of Lapwings along with young, just hope they don't get predated on.
