Friday 12th August

 One more splendidly cozy, warm day, however mercifully not as warm as in the south of England.

A number of fascinating, much less typical types were seen today– Louise Muir reports a Kingfisher at Kinuachdrachd, right up in the north pointer of Jura. Down on The Oa at Kinnabus David Dinsley had actually seen a number of Swifts.

In Other Places, Andy Harris reports a Sandwich Tern over Gruinart this night. I strayed bent on the RSPB conceals at Gruinart this mid-day, however it was peaceful. A total amount of 6 Buzzards as well as a group of 45 Oystercatchers was all I might summon. In among the thick development of plants that is presently being chewed down by the livestock there were 1-2 tiny spots of noticeable open water, so possibly something of rate of interest will reveal up?

Instead much less peaceful today will certainly be the heather moorlands of the Scottish highlands, Yorkshire dales as well as in other places as it is the “( In) Marvelous 12 th “, when the weapons begin blowing up away at as numerous Red Grumble as they can fire. There is a great point of view item in The Scotsman concerning grouch capturing that informs the shocking tale even more eloquently than I can– do examine it out:


Below is a display capture of David’s Marsh Harrier from the other day.
