Not sure what the weather was like on Islay today as I'm writing this from Dumfries & Galloway.
The bird news comes from a host of people and all corners of the island:
Peregrines were noted at Kintra, Gruinart and at the American Monument on The Oa.
White-tailed Eagles were everywhere - one at Whin Park at 4pm, two at Gruinart in the evening and 3 near the Dower House at Kildalton.
Hen Harriers noted at the American Monument, Bruichladdich, 2 at Gruinart.
Last night David Dinsley counted 4 Barn Owls between Kinnabus and Port Ellen plus a Tawny Owl in Cairnmore Woods. David also saw a lone Whooper Swan on Loch Kinnabus. Mary Redman's Chough total at Currie Sands was 12 today along with a Wheatear. James How gets Birds of the Day prize with a Little Egret and an Osprey at Gruinart this evening plus a group of 10 Stonechats.
