Saturday 30th July

This morning, Bob and David Barr had spent a couple of hours doing a sea watch down at Frenchman's Rocks where they had "lots of Gannets flying overhead, hundreds of Manx Shearwater passing by, Cormorants, Shags, Kittiwakes and Fulmars flew past as well. 8 Common Scoter were seen close in, an eider, a Tystie, a Peregrine, 25 Oystercatcher and a Greenshank".  Back up here at home this afternoon, we saw a total of 5 Buzzards wheeling over the Machir, yes 5 in all, I did a double check, honest....
Many thanks to David Formby for his sightings while he was over here on holiday, great to catch up with you David, Margaret and their son John.
