Hunting Hen Harrier On Islay

If you see any photo of a hunting Hen Harrier with Jura in the background you are bound to be on Islay.
We have just come back from our Autumn week on Islay which has been surprisingly mild but with a distinct lack of any sun. Unlike back home Islay has had a bumper crop of Hawthorne berries this year and it was good to see thousands of Icelandic Redwings devouring them with good numbers of Fieldfares – my first this winter! Whilst waiting for the thrushes both Robin and Wren posed on a fencepost by the car.
I will include some photos of the Geese and Swans next week.Click here
