Spring migration

The day after the first Wheatear was seen on Islay this spring, a party of about 20–25 Whooper Swans flew north past Bruichladdich this morning. They will presumably stop one or more times before heading for Iceland, but here are two signs of migration. The photograph is not of the birds I saw, but one taken by the late Gordon Langsbury here a couple of years ago.
