It’s rained here from dawn until dusk today. I could not resist a peak at the rain gauge and another 18mm has fallen. Apart from the May Princess not appearing and no moths in the trap, it does not affect me. With most of my outdoor work done, I’m inside writing my annual report. I did go for a walk and got soaked.
But it cleared up nicely this evening. Looking down the loch there were dramatic skies at dusk looking back towards the Fife coast.
Apart from the last of the Fulmars chicks on the crags the only other breeding birds on the island are the Feral Pigeons!
We’ve been seeing the odd interesting bird out here. We’ve seen Sooty Shearwater, Pomarine Skua Black-tailed Godwits and another Barred Warbler. We also spotted a Minke Whale yesterday.
