Saturday 21st May

Well, the weather has beaten us all today, I was fortunate that I went out first thing this morning and fed the sheep. Since then it has rained all day apart for a short time late this afternoon. This coming week, here on Islay is the "Feis" week, originally a week of music and dance, but of late the Distilleries have helped out and given it a new turn. In fact I doubt if there would be any spare accommodation on Islay over the next few days. The next point is that over the last few years, some of the Distilleries had to shut production down due to a lack of water, not so this year!!! The only bird of note that I have seen today is the "reversing" hen Pheasant, and the Cuckoo was singing away good style in the rain, sorry folks.... Tomorrow might be better but the forecast is for more rain and high winds on Monday!
