Wed 9th July

While the South of the country is having it's fair share of rain today, here on Islay we have been basking in glorious sunshine, up to 19 degrees or so the weather forecast said at 6pm! No word from James who is no doubt rather wet on holiday on the Scilly Isles.
I was heartened to count 23 Swallows on the electric wires overhead this afternoon, considering that we are certainly down in occupied nests this year. On the positive side also was that the nest in the garage was getting some work done to it in readiness for a second clutch of eggs to be laid shortly. None of the House Martins have left their nests yet, but will be shortly! On the freshly mown lawn there were several young Pied Wagtails out and about.
