Two e mails in with some birds for you to enjoy….
Peter wrote the following comment..
“Mark Shields reports seeing the “usual” mixed Velvet / Common Scoter pair on the loch at Easter Ellister last Monday (8th). Assuming the Velvet is one of the remnants of the previous wildfowl collection there, it makes the bird apparently well into its twenties!”
David Wood had seen a “migrant spotted flycatcher and blackcap on the Oa today”
