Tuesday 28th May
Yesterday evening, after writing the entry for the blog, I took a wee walk down along the burn from here towards the Coatguards and on towards Machir bay and the sea… I was not disappointed as a Heron took off from the burn, and there are at least 40 active nest sites being occupied by Sand Martins. Finally when sitting down for a breather, I heard a distant Corncrake calling over on Rockside.
Jamie Barr, Distillery Dave’s son who has been over for a few days visiting his folks, had seen a male Hen Harrier yesterday, down close to Foreland.
By the way another glorious day with the weather again, so we managed out in the garden, all going well, we might get the borders finished tomorrow…
