Observations over a couple of days but mainly 22/5/12. They have chick or chicks by now, she was feeding them tiny morsels of fish, but they are too small to see their heads over the nest cup.

14/5/12¬† I was due to fly midday, so having captured a car I had time to explore part of the island, but the event of the morning happened right outside the Sella Ness camp. I heard a bird song that I did not recognise, but yet I did. Phrases of this bird song were familiar, I had put it down to a Wren, but I was not confident as I know a wren's song intimately and this was very different. The song was coming from overgrown grass around a container on a sub-based area, the fact I could hear this…
