COMMON GUILLEMOT DEATHS – Over the last week or so dead and dying Common Guillemots have been noted in the West of Scotland and in Argyll at the head of some sea lochs e.g. Loch Fyne, Long & Gilp. In order to monitor the scale of this we would welcome your reports of any dead and dying auks (numbers/location/any abnormalities etc).
A Common Guillemot in Loch Awe (North end) – obviously unwell (and in the wrong environment!). Alan Dykes
TIREE: 1 Osprey fishing at Loch Bhasapol this morning (Chris Aller).
