There was a female grey wagtail on the burn on the top road in Upper Milovaig at mid-day.
A pair of oystercatchers were feeding two young chicks on the shore at Lower Milovaig.
Four risso's dolphins went north past Neist Point at 1pm. There was a pod of 20 common dolphins far out in the Minch off Neist Point, early afternoon. There were several harbour porpoises feeding around Neist Point during the day.
There was a common scoter in Loch Pooltiel, near the big waterfall at mid-day. This is the first known record of this species in Glendale. A pair of stonechats were feeding fledged young on the top road in Lower Milovaig. There are still a few late cuckoos around.
A circular walk from Milovaig to Oisgill Bay, via An Ceannaich, returning from Waterstein. (7 miles, 4-5 hours).
Follow the road around past the pier (photograph at the bottom of the page) and up-hill until you reach a dirt road on the right leading to a group of croft houses. From here head across the field at 90 degrees to the road, towards the cliff top corner of the fenced field ahead. The track here is quite boggy for a few hundred yards.
Keeping between the fence and the cliff top, follow the sheep track around the headland. After about a mile you will see a magnificent natural arch at the base of the cliff. This is an excellent place to see seals fishing in the sea and the swarms of giant jellyfish that swim to the surface in Summer.
Keep following the cliff-top track as it begins to ascend up to Biod Ban, past a small lochan.
At the top the cliff-top undulates and you will see three or four distinct peaks ahead, along Biod Ban. The path takes the lazy route along the level ground but you must climb to the top of the first peak you come to. This gives the most incredible views across the Minch, the whole string of Western Isles and down across Neist to Lorgill. The cliffs here are over 650 feet high with a sheer drop to the sea below. The photograph, above, doesn't do it justice.
Follow the cliff-top ridge along, up and down over the peaks, until the cliffs begin to descend down to Oisgill Bay (pronounced 'Oyz-Gill') (Map ). Here you meet up with a stone dyke leading up onto the second half of the ridge.
There are three ways you can go from here: Either: a) follow the stream downhill to Oisgill Bay and join up with the coastguard hut walk, b) follow the ridge along Druim nan-Sgarbh until you meet up with the road, or c) follow the dyke directly back across the moor to Milovaig.
