"Female Hen Harrier at RSPB Gruinart. Nice views of Treecreeper on woodland walk plus Goldcrest..Two Choughs at Kilnave and a further 40 choughs at Ardnave. One immature Golden Eagle being mobbed by a pair of Buzzards, then 3 fabulous immature White-tailed Eagles on the sand at Ardnave  on north end of Loch Gruinart. Finally a single Peregrine and 25 Whooper Swans on the Ardnave loch. What a first day! "
