Monday 29th January

Today has been a still and beautiful one on Islay, with a welcome reprieve from the gusts of the last week and the sun shining. Not much to report from across the island. The geese were enjoying the sun out on the Gruinart flats today alongside the Little Egrets. 

We were sad to hear today of the passing of George Jackson over the weekend, a keen birder who lived in Bruichladdich for many years. Thank you to Fiona for passing on the news, and who said, 

I visited him last month and despite his Alzheimer's his interest picked up when I was telling him about Islay's geese and eagles. 

Our thoughts are with his family.
