Mon 1st Sept

Well that's another month in, and Christmas is getting closer all the time. Last month our rainfall tally came to 5.75", last year was only 4.5", so was last year dry, or was this year wet? The running total so far this year is around 2" wetter than 2007.
On the bird front, there were 2 Wheatear down at Rockside and there was another one further along the road this evening. Along the crag yesterday there was a total of 17 Ravens, and Michal had a pair of Tawny Owls calling later on last night at Gruinart. Here at home, this afternoon there was a young Fulmar on the ground which obviously had not made the sea on leaving the nest on it's first flight. So, I managed to avoid getting spat upon when catching it and duly took it down the sea before releasing it.
