Well Choughed

A week on Islay with two superb Winter days and the rest dry with a cold South East wind. I came to concentrate on flight shots of `Chough and I have had two great days with shots like the one featured on my blog.

During the week we have seen two Otters and both eluded the camera. HenHarriers have appeared daily with Merlin, Sparrowhawk and Kestrel observed on some days. Three pair of Ravens have been building their nests on cliffs so the breeding season is now under way.

Amongst a flock of two hundred finches in a stubble field there was one male Brambling present.
