Islay Marsh - Saturday 30/7

On a walk from Instow around to the marsh at back while the tide was coming in we saw a juvenile Stonechat near the little pond. Not seen any there at all before.
Also large numbers of Curlew, OysterCatchers and Med Gulls. A young fledged Oystercatcher with it's parents and a couple of Black Tailed Godwit.
Back at the cricket pitch 3 Little Owls, one adult & two youngsters I think.
