KINTYRE: A male Hen Harrier was seen at Carradale Golf Course and a Magpie in the area since 24th March was joined by another one today.  Also a female Brambling at the garden feeders with around 60 Siskins including a male with unreadable metal ring on its right leg. On 2nd April a Weasel in the garden was quick enough to catch a Chaffinch! (Alasdair Paterson)
