Thursday 6th June

Another great day over here again.... Yesterday, Jeremy and Kim had 2 Whimbrel over at Loch Gruinart, James had a Yellowhammer and also a Golden Eagle over the reserve. Nick had carried out his second round of his tetrads yesterday as well. The tetrad immediately around here proved quite interesting, with the highlight being a total of 13 Chough counted, Corncrake heard in "Minister's field", 2 Twite present as were Linnets, Sedge Warblers and Reed Bunting. The tetrad over beyond Coull, taking in Carn Mor and some of the coastline had a completely different set of birds, Herring Gull, Lesser BB Gull, Fulmars, Black Guillemots, Razorbills out on the sea, Gannets flying past, back on land, Oystercatcher, Ringed Plover, Comic Tern and plenty of Lapwings. Nick's other square was North of Bunnahabhain, on land,  pr Whinchat, Whitethroat and Skylark while out on the Sound of Islay, Gannets, Shag, GND and Black Guillemot  were all seen. Thanks Nick. Yesterday Stafford had a Golden Eagle over behind Ballygrant. He also saw 2 Cuckoos pursuing each other and finally 2 Curlew. Here at home, the Redpolls and the Siskins are still present as were 2 Collared Doves today
