Fri 17th December
White is the colour. I know whites not a colour, its a shade, all the same Islay has gone white today. We have had a snow day, with the schools and airport all closed due to snow. I can not remember having so much snow on Islay since the winter of 2000, when we had a good coating. Needless to say I haven't seen many birds through the blizzards, but thats because I have been sledging and snow balling. Taking advantage of the moment. I did however see a very cold looking grey wagtail feeding on the ground uncovered by our dodgey sledge.
