Wednesday 21st August

Bob yesterday had walked round Ardnave Point and had seen the following birds, 4 Barwits, 20 Dunlin, 2 Redshank, 50 Ringed Plover, 8 Turnstone, a flock of 45 Chough flying around, several small groups of Linnet and Twite. On Ardnave Loch itself, Tufted Duck and a Mute Swan along with 4 cygnets. On the way down the road, 2 Wheatear and 6 Stonechats were seen. Down over the flats at Gruinart, Bob counted 250 Greylags. Today, about a mile South of Bowmore, we had an immature Hen Harrier fly across the road in front of us, further on over the moor before Duich, a young Golden Eagle was out hunting over the moor, not that far off the road. Bob's brother in law who is over for a few days had a White tailed Sea Eagle over at Lagavulin this afternoon.
