27th July

At sea NW of TIREE: Report today via Birdtrack of a WILSON’S PETREL seen from the Oban- Barra ferry on 20th July (Tim Mellby/Jonathan Hannam). If accepted by the SBRC it would be the second record for Argyll. The first was of one caught alive in a net on Jura on 1 Oct 1891 which was also the first Scottish record.
