May days

The cold northerly winds have continued well into may/we still need a log fire every night to keep us warm! However, there is still evidence displayed in the wild life on the island that we are well into spring;

The Oystercatchers are fiercely guarding their territories and nests, screaming a warning as you walk by.

Squill has begun to carpet the coastal areas in a lovely light blue.

The Thrift is also starting to flower, the pink clumps lining the Gullies and cliffs.

We are also starting to see the oats and grass that we sowed a month or so ago beginning to poke there stems above the ground. All images (c) Ben Porter
