Wednesday 17th June
Think that Summer has been and gone, it has not been that great a day outside with the temperature just over 12 degrees, and come to think of it the longest day is almost here, oh no, the days will start to get shorter....Back on Saturday some visitors had seen an Osprey successfully fishing on Loch Finlaggan!!! Ron Todd, another visitor, yesterday had seen Wheatears and Meadow Pipits while down on the Oa, up at Gruinart he had a pair of Teal mating. He also had some Shovelers there too. Just out of Port Charlotte towards Kilchiaran, Ron had a Cuckoo. Also on his travels, he had 3 different male Hen Harriers and also some Stonechats. Tom from Cumbria had been up at Ardnave today and saw 2 different male Hen Harriers. Over Nave island, a Bonxie was spotted with a pair of Little Terns fishing. Round at Sanaigmore, in the bay were 6 Eiders with only one youngster, a pair of Shelduck were also present there too.
