It almost looks like they’re having a chat, two sheep and a Chough spotted in the machair at Ardnave. Choughs have a stronghold on Islay, in particular at Ardnave and Kilchoman.

I spotted this beetle on the shore of Loch Drolsay during a walk in June 2015. I first thought it is a Common Black Ground Beetle, but then I understand they have grooves on their wings/wing covers? Any pointers what kind of beetle this is are welcome.
