21st May

Around the Observatory were 3 willow warbler and 2 spotted flycatcher, 3 garden warbler, lesser whitethroat and 2 woodpigeon were at Holland and a goldfinch was seen. A smart male brambling was by the road at Purtabreck and at the north end a grey-headed wagtail was by Bewan Loch. A male nightjar was a surprise along the cliffs at Gue Park, a ring ouzel was nearby and the glaucous gull was still at the south end. Other migrants included 3 grey heron, a collared dove, 178 swallow, 20 house martin, a robin, a whitethroat, a siskin and a jackdaw, and to round the day off an osprey flew through in the evening.
