Thursday 28th April

Earlier  this week, Pia Roberts had seen an Osprey sitting on top of a telegraph pole at Loch Gorm.  On Tuesday, the Leigh Birders (David Shallcross, Eddie King, Alan Wilcox, Pauline and Ian Greenhalgh) had seen 4 Sandwich Terns, some Knot and some Barwits on Loch Indal. At Gruinart, they saw Coal Tit, Peregrine, Merlin while further out, they saw 15 Blackwits, a Dabchick, 15 Whitefronts, 20 Barnies, 2 Whoopers, 45 Golden Plover, Whimbrel and Turnstone. They also saw a further 2 Whoopers at Ardnave Loch. Yesterday, they had 10 House Martins just past Bridgend, a Cuckoo on the Rhinns with a Goldcrest in Gearach Forestry ans well as some Willow Warblers there too. Over at the junction leading to Gruinart from Loch Gorm, a male and also a ringtail Hen Harrier were added to their list for the day. They also had another male Harrier up at Sanaigmore. Susan Miller had seen a single Yellowhammer out of Port Charlotte, on the road leading out to Kilchiaran. This morning, like a lot of other areas, we awoke to snow showers, although it did not lie white on the ground here.
