En route to Gigha did 4 TTV's in NN12 round Lochawe.

I lack local knowledge on birds, but noted Pied Fly behind the Tight Line pub, Osprey nest on mobile phone mast opposite Ben Cruachan visitor centre (2/3 juv) and fishing past Lochawe, Goosander b8 on loch, 2 BTD in flight over the loch, f Merlin Stronmilchan, plus Golden-ringed Dragonfly there; several families of Wood Warbler, Spot Fly, Tree Pipit, etc.

Pics above from dawn birding during TTV NN12I, with Kilchurn Castle appearing from the mist. Osprey nest and f/imm Pied Fly shown below.
