Thursday 21st July

Peter and Pia returned home on Tuesday from their trip to Alaska. A great trip by the sound of things. On the ferry coming over from Kennacraig to Islay they had seen many rafts of Guillemots of adults and juveniles totalling several hundred birds. They also had seen Kittiwakes, a few Razorbills, Manx Shearwaters and Gannets but no Fulmars! David Formby had seen a Tufted Duck along with a pr of Mute Swan with 4 cygnets on Loch Skerrols. Out of nowhere, a Daubenton's bat appeared. Today when Bob was up visiting us, he saw a Redpoll at the feeders, with 20 species while he was here. Just great....
