Sunday 29th June
A glorious day over with one major problem, the power went off this morning and did not come on 'til late afternoon... I had just spent a few minutes setting our generator running and then the power came back on... Back on Thursday, Emily had a good guided walk at Gruinart, up on the "mooorland trail" they saw an Osprey carrying a fish towards Bridgend from the Loch Gorm area. Then a male followed by a ringtail Hen Harrier. Down at Moulin, there were several juv Pied Wagtails present along with Whitethroats and Linnets too. Visitors had been telling Emily of seeing Buzzards carrying Adders! Yesterday, the Horwich birders, Chris and Tony Johnson had seen "hundreds" of gannets passing Machir Bay from North to South. Thanks to Chris and Tony for sharing their sightings with us.
