Thursday 30th March

Hello Bird Fans. A couple of late sightings from Jarred Johnson missed last night's entry - 2 WTE down around the Portnahaven area. Also c30 redwing NW over Kilchoman distillery and a couple of harriers around Loch Gorm. Thanks Jarred. 

On to today's news, and Gary reports an anonymous report of the first osprey of the year over "Islay estate lochs" yesterday. No idea which lochs, but it's getting to that time of the year. Marc Eden gets BOTD with 2 sandwich terns feeding off of Bruichladdich this evening, and a couple of sightings from David Rosair, per Peter, of glaucous gull in the usual place and the ring-necked duck still at Ballygrant Loch. 

It was a lovely Spring day, with redwings and wheatears both noticeable around Loch Gorm and the odd sub-ad WTE still knocking around at Gruinart. 

That's yer lot. Thanks to all.
