Monday 29th & Tuesday 30th August

 No idea what the weather is like on Islay as I'm not there, but close by on the mainland it is warm and sunny, so hope it is good back on the island.

A catch-up post for Sunday 28th was a sighting of 2 Ospreys over Loch Gruinart seen by Laura Nicoll.

On Monday David Wood had a Quail near The Oa car park - not many of these ever recorded on Islay.

Margaret Brooke reports the usual Hen Harrier and Sparrowhawk from her place at Kilchoman. The Sparrowhawk apparently taking a couple of her local Swallows and being generally "pesky" as Ian Brooke would have called it!

On Tuesday Gary Turnbull noted the first return of Great Northern Divers to the island with 3 out on Loch Indaal from Port Charlotte.
