Saturday 27th December

It may have been relatively dry over on the West coast of Islay, it certainly was not very warm with the frost alarm going off as we drove along, and it is usually triggered when the temperature is 3 degrees or less. The Paps of Jura had a white cap on their summits with Mull looking like have had a lot more than Jura. Here on Islay, there was just a dusting up behind Bowmore towards Ballygrant and nothing worth speaking of down the Port Ellen end of Islay! So, off we ventured for a short walk along the River Sorn from the Woollen Mill up towards East Lodge. After saying that we had no Greenfinches here at home yesterday, well today on the feeders at the Woollen Mill, Margaret spotted a pair of them there! The feeders there are well fed by Gordon there with quite a few Blue Tits seen as well. A Wren was spotted in the undergrowth as we walked along with the odd Robin seen as well. Mind and watch the National Geographic channel tomorrow (Sunday) at 6 pm and watch "Wild Scotland" and you should see the final program with some footage from here on Islay along with some well known faces....
