Saturday 3rd September

At Saligo Bay yesterday evening, we counted 17 Pied Wagtail going in to the reed bed. Earlier on, mid afternoon, Margaret had seen a Peregrine on top of Carraig Dhubh out on Loch Indaal out from  Blackrock. Today, the Peregrine was seen on Islay, at Blackrock on a kill/  remnants of a rabbit, before it took off carrying its' prey.  This afternoon, the Marsh Harrier was seen again, this time down on the South side of Loch Gorm by Paul Graham  +  A N Other. Late afternoon, and James had spotted a  Sedge Warbler flit through the game/ cover crop here at home. Yesterday Mike Peacock had seen his first GND of the Autumn, off Port Charlotte! Today he had done another sea watch down at Frenchman's rocks with Peter. Highlights included a Balearic Shearwater, 465 Manxies and 8 Sooty Shearwater during a 2 hour stint.
