Saturday 31st August

Yesterday Dave had seen 3 Sooty Shearwater  as well as some Gannets and also Manx Shearwaters as they passed by the Oa. This morning, down at Frenchman's Rocks, Peter and Pia had around 20 Kittiwakes, 1 Great Skua, 210 Manx Shearwaters, 150 Gannets and 46 Fulmars all flying East in an hours sea watching. Earlier this evening, down at Uiskentuie, there was a single Barnacle Goose present amongst all the Gulls. There had been quite a few Gulls present where the freshwater enters the sea this past week. Later on a ringtail Hen Harrier flew over the cottages here at home. Mark round at Rockside has had his combine out this week cutting his barley when the weather still holds good with the baler right up behind the combine. This evening there were a large number of Greylags on the stubble
