2nd June, 2008.

A glorious day throughout providing a backdrop to showing off Islay at its best and giving an opportunity for colleague and friend John Warner to see some of the island's specialities.
A morning visit to Frenchman's Rocks showed Manx Shearwaters and Gannets to be moving but little else other than a single Whimbrel. A run around the recording area produced a couple of Corncrakes, a few waders ( Dunlin, Turnstone ) but little else at what is now a fairly quiet time of year.
Marsh Fritillary butterflies were much in evidence and, if the weather holds, the chance to complete some survey work in " new" areas could arise.
