4th June, 2008.
A day of two halves with fine weather until late afternoon when rain thereafter!! Whilst all the recording area was covered little was happening so some considerable time was spent in various woodlands. The first family parties of Long-tailed Tit and Blue Tit were noted and records of quite interesting species, for Islay, generated such as Bullfinch and Blackcap. Things generally are very quiet but I guess that, within a week or so, many young birds will be in evidence and activity levels increase.
