Day of contrast

The Isle of May yesterday morning

Tuesday 4th May comments: The opening six weeks of the new season have certainly been dominated by the weather as we started off with bright sunshine in late March which was followed by an extremely cold snap in early April which brought temperatures plummeting below freezing. Now we are into early May and once again we are experiencing another cold few days.

Yesterday morning the island was basking in sunshine (as shown above) with beautiful flat seas and calm conditions. Turn the clock forward six hours and we had strong easterly wind, heavy seas and then torrential rainfall which turned the island into this…

The heavy rain brought flash flooding and although it was most welcome (we’ve hardly had any rain in recent months), the cold wind was certainly not welcome. A few Puffins were also showing signs of wet underground burrows…

We are now hoping the worst of the weather has now moved on and we can get on with sunnier conditions…fingers crossed. And oh Happy Star Wars day… yes May the Fourth be with you (ha ha ha)
