A quick visit to Loch Ardvule late afternoon to see if the Blue-winged Teal was still there as it would have made 6 birds reported on the islands today, but sad to say I did not find it. Another Garden Warbler was ringed in the garden today making it 3 in 3 days, more than I've seen in any other year.
