Monday 7th January
You can always tell when I write a lot of woffle about the weather, the ferries and soon you realise that I have few reports of birds being sent through, well tonight is one of those days …. the morning ferry diverted up to Port Askaig, the beauty of having 2 ferry terminals on Islay… Yes, I suppose it was quite windy and a lot worse up North with several ferries being cancelled.
The only bird that I can speak about is… yes, the Sparrowhawk was sitting on the wall down beside the bird crop,watching and looking for any wee birds, but they, I presume had gone in to hiding, as I certainly did not spot any… Needless to say, he too eventually took off and flew away!!!
