Friday 17th July
Yesterday while carrying out some painting on the rails around the viewing platform at the reserve at Gruinart, Mandy and Heather saw a hen Peregrine Falcon fly past. This morning, here at home, we heard one calling away out over the crag. The weather has gone downhill somewhat, especially this evening, the top wind gust so far is 51mph with the rain running down the windows, just like what the old ones on some of the fishmonger's shops used to have...To put it politely, not a night for going out in, and I pity the poor sheep that may have just had their fleeces shorn off them and nowhere to go to shelter from the weather, nor would I like to be on the ferries either!!!
