Light winds, grey skies and a fair bit of light rain at times.
The only birding news comes from Tom Evans who, despite the not very nice weather took himself up to the highest point (491 metres / c.1,600 feet) on Islay yesterday, camped out and reports thus:
"I bivvyed up Beinn Bheiger Thursday night. Fairly disappointing from a weather and wildlife perspective but there were a pair of inquisitive Golden Plovers keeping me company".
Given the date and the behaviour of the Golden Plovers, it would suggest a breeding pair - always good to have this sort of information to fill in the gaps in our knowledge of what we have on Islay - especially from an area that few bother to venture to.
