Sightings still very few and far between, but there are definite signs of the seasons changing. A heavy dew around the moth traps this morning, the hazelnuts are growing, and flocks of greylags are starting to assemble in the in-bye fields. Winter starts after the Islay Show, according to the local legend. So we have two weeks to go then!
Lauren had 2 greenshanks at Loch Gorm yesterday, whilst Laura had a WTE, a hen harrier and several buzzards on the weekly guided walk at RSPB Loch Gruinart.
