Sunday 28th June

The other day, Alistair Hutchison had seen a pair of Bullfinches down at Bridgend with their brood of 4 fledglings. Carl reported through that there is still a Corncrake calling away down at Shorefield at Bruichladdich. Armin had spent some time down at the hide at Gruinart yesterday. From the viewing platform, he had a ringtail Hen Harrier. Down at the hide there was a Corncrake calling away, all the time he was there! The pair of Sedge Warblers were busy carrying food into their young at their nest. A Snipe was both seen and heard, along with plenty of Lapwings. Armin also saw a Linnet from the hide as well. Today, Gary and Sam had an Osprey, mid afternoon at the head of Loch Indaal where the River Sorn enters the bay. 2 Greenfinches were seen here at home this afternoon by Margaret and this evening, the young rabbits are out playing on the grass, will have to "order" the cats to rectify this matter rather than sleeping inside all day....
