Tues 19th Feb

Having just received a copy of Gordon Yates' DVD, "The Wildlife Gems of Islay", I managed late last night to sit down and view it. The whole DVD is around an hour in all, and the DVD is well presented, with Gordon's excellent photography to the fore. One gets a feel for Islay as he goes through the seasons, from storms to sunsets, we get it all. Gordon has done his own voice over, a nice touch I thought. In all, more than 90 species of Islay's birds are shown, along with footage of Otters, Deer, Seals, Adders and some of our wild flowers, including splendid views of Bridgend Wood carpeted with the Snowdrops. Also noted were Marsh Fritillary and other butterflies. All told I would certainly recommend this DVD to anyone. You can get a preview of it on line on http://www.gordon-yates.com and order it direct with Gordon.
