Monday 26th February

 A lovely bright and sunny day throughout.

Gary Turnbull had an impressive count of 5 White-tailed Eagles calling over Finlaggan this morning.

Whooper Swans seem to be on the move, with Mary Redman finding 20 on Claddach Loch  and James How noting 29 up at Gruinart. James also saw a Peregrine and 6 Woodcock at Gruinart.

Joanna Dailey on a return visit came across the regular Chough flock up at Ardnave - 24 in total, at least 17 of them colour-ringed, while over on Loch Indaal she watched a White-tailed Eagle chasing a gull, which presumably got away.

Other than birds, Mary Redman took a photo of some Marsh Fritillary caterpillars warming up in the sun.
