This spell of dry, warm weather continues here on Islay, the rainfall last month did not even add up to an inch in total, add on April's 2" and things start to dry up. Some of the Distilleries are already starting to watch the water levels in the various lochs which supply them. Back here at home, I have just come in from outside and noted that we have 8 House Martin nests, 4 of which are new this year, and there may be more nests yet as they can build them quite quickly. It is only 3 years ago when we had our first House Martins here at our house. On the down side, Swallow nests are definitely fewer, with only 5 in use this year compared with 9 last year.
