Wed 21st July

A rather, wet miserable day out here today, but after the dry spell of late, it had to come sometime! All the "burnt" knowes along with the grass at the head of Loch Indaal are all a healthy green colour again.
James came back on the ferry last night after his holidays. On the ferry crossing he saw 22 Porpoises, the largest group being only 5. Over 1,000 Manx Shearwater were also noted as well as 12 Great Northern divers. There were also lots of Guillemots with young, which as James said was a good sign, as sometimes it is only the adult birds but no young to be seen at this time of year.
