The Acrocephalus warbler sp (reed or Blyth's reed) again singing in my garden at Bornish early morning (6-7am) but very skulking (singing from within brambles/rosa rugosa and/or willow), and still no clear view.

Yesterday 2 whitethroats and a chiffchaff at North Loch Eynort and the spotted flycatcher still in my garden.

cheers, Andrew

1st summer male Red-breasted Flycatcher at Creachan today, singing during the morning though got quieter as the day wore on. At least 6 Spotted Flycatchers were present around the island. There's been a small influx of Siskins in the past few days and at least 5 were seen around the island today. It seems to be a very good year for Blackcaps; I've had 10 singing males in the past few days. A lone Canada Goose was at Caolas, Vatersay this afternoon.
