Tuesday 9 August

Photos from Billy of the 'Caol Ila wagtails'.  He counted 14 feeding in the bushes in front of the still house.
Andy found an Osprey over Loch Gorm while out birding and Margaret a golden eagle above the crag at Kilchoman reserve. It was a hot day, so no doubt they were enjoying the thermals.  
Tuesday before the Islay Show is traditionally the day the volunteers come together at the show ground to erect the main event marquees, it was a very busy place in the hot sun! It's a chance for folk to meet before the hectic day itself, but also to make sure nothing needs repaired or replaced.  How nice to see the show back again after 2 long, strange years:  the field is taking shape nicely.  For those of you visiting the island this week please note "everything shuts for the show", so worth checking your plans to see what might be open that day.
