Tuesday 22nd September
Heather had spotted 2 Snow Buntings close to the American monument as she led the guided walk on Oa this morning. James had carried out a survey on the geese on Ardnave, Griuinart, Craigens and up at Killinallan today, not many geese but his tally came through at 60 Greylags, 3 Barnies, 142 Lapwing, 2 Golden Plover, 3 Sparrowhawk, 3 ringtail Hen Harrier, 1 Golden Eagle. The American Wigeon was seen on Ardnave Loch, with some Grey seal pups present over on Nave Island. This afternoon, we had a ringtail Hen Harrier just past the Hedges at Sunderland and then a male Hen Harrier above Carrabus. Back at home the other day, there were 2 Chough perched on top of the cross out at the War graves cemetery.
