Monday 24th June
Visitors, Andy and Karen Evans from Perthshire are over on Islay for this week on holiday. Yesterday, they had seen 2 Hen Harriers on the high road, with another one present just out of Bowmore. On the mud flats out from Bowmore, at the head of Loch Indaal, they had a Greenshank amongst some Oystercatchers and Curlews.
Late yesterday evening, we had looked outside to spot that Angus (our cat) had just killed a Stoat, so he was praised for his efforts!!!
This afternoon, Margaret saw a Golden Eagle soaring high above the crag, here at home..
Before I forget, if you are around tomorrow night, the bird nerds will be meeting up down at Foreland at 6.30 pm.
Another piece of news, tonight is the 4,000th entry on the blog….
