Snowdrop continues to grow and be very sociable...as well as naughty!
The wildflowers have been fantastic this summer. The hayrattle we sowed a few years ago is thriving, and this season has seen a few Ox-eye daisies re-appear in these meadows, having been extinct for 40 years.
Another flower rich meadow - this one with more marshy species, such as this Purple loosestrife
A new bull was brought onto the island, who we have named Tomos
We've had some impressive thunderstorms - here's an spectacular build up of Cumulus nimbus over the mainland.
Some of the poly-tunnel harvest!
A shearing team from Cwrt managed to shear all 300 ewes in just 5 hours...pretty impressive!
...and a commission for 3 mini coracles!
Steve and Gareth managed to get 300 bales of silage harvested, despite various machinery challenges along the way!
Rachel had a fantastic week with the Society for Wildlife Artists on a seabird drawing course based in Aberlady. The week included a visit to the gannet colony on Bass rock. The tutors were very inspiring and a huge encouragement.
She has spent the rest of the summer both on Enlli and at Felin Uchaf, volunteering at this amazing eco-centre near Aberdaron where they have been working on a new building which will host a centre forLiving arts and science. See http://www.felinuchaf.org/1/index.html
Another summer highlight was Ben's return from 2 months in Romania with Operation Wallacea where he was leading the bird recording project. You can read of his experiences soon on his blog at benporterphotography.blogspot.co.uk.
