New Year's Day, 1st January 2015
A good New Year to all our readers from a wet and windswept Islay... Not really a day for going out but all the same, Malcolm saw 34 Pale bellied Brent Geese down at Bruichladdich this afternoon. Now for the other piece of information that you have been eagerly waiting for.. the rainfall tally for the year....Here on the West side of Islay, our tally came through at 56.65" for the year, over at Mulindry, our friends' tally there was 70.26". They seem to get rain more often than we do, in 2013, they had 14" more than us, in 2012 a mere 10" more while back in 2011 they had almost 14" more. Think we will just say put just now!
