Ardnave is one of the best places on Islay to spot/watch seals (other good places include Portnahaven and the south coast past Ardbeg). This one was watching me watching it near Ardnave Point on a nice June afternoon.
Spotted from the old/south RSPB hide at Gruinart, a Swallow is flying low over the water just outside the hide, hunting for insects.
Always a fascinating sight, a Hen Harrier on Islay. This one I watched at Gruinart on the hunt. It tried to get to some pheasant chicks, but their mother wasn’t having any of it and fought off the Hen Harrier (unfortunately I didn’t get any pictures of that brief fight).
