Wader Delights

Our 117th visit to Islay was blessed with unbroken sunshine and a max temperature of 28C! For a wildlife enthusiast Islay has everything to offer and it was good to see the great variety of Waders still present when we arrived. Sanderling and Turnstones were bound for Greenland and some were now in summer plumage. Snipe were displaying and Common Sandpipers seemed to be found on every hundred yards of coastline.Redshank and Curlew were also present in good numbers and now all had young to look after. www.facebook.com/gordonyateswildlife
