Wednesday 9th March

Yesterday, Peter had gone over to Jura, but had not seen a lot there, but close to Craighouse, he had a Hen Harrier and then a count of 16 Canada Geese, presumably feral geese as Peter commented! Later on and back on Islay, the juv Glaucous Gull was picking over the last remains of a goose carcase! Further out on the Loch, around 60 Common Scoter and also 5 Long tailed Duck were present. Gary yesterday afternoon had a scan over Loch Indaal, from the pier at Bowmore. His birds were as follows 21 RB Merganser, 7 GND, 37 Eider, 8 Goldeneye, 2 male Scaup, 31 Common Scoter, 3 Cormorant and 7 Slavonian Grebe.
