Yellowhammers Galore

Many thanks to Trevor Potts at the Ardnamurchan Campsite for sending the Diary this picture of no less than seven yellowhammers.  He tells us that there were two others as well, making a remarkable number for a bird which is described as 'a bird of open country' and which is said to be a summer visitor only in this part of the world.  In fact, we've seen them ever since we moved to Ormsaigbeg, but never before in such numbers - we see about four at a time.

  1. Hi, our population is mainly fixed with some incomers from further north and they will come together in little flocks in the winter, but its the first time ive seen so many together, welcome back Trevor.
