January on Enlli

We started the year with some gorse burning on the mountain and the south end - this is part of a 6/7 year rotational gorse control programme.
 Last week the high pressure brought with it banks of thick fog which provided spectacular views from the mountain.

 For the first time in 4 years, the settled weather meant that the sheep scanner and team could come over to scan the lambing flock.  Knowing whether the sheep are carrying single lambs, twins or occasionaly triplets helps us to feed them appropriately prior to lambing.

 The low tides over the last few days have revealed lots of starfish!  Ben spotted one being carried away by a Herring Gull- captured on camera (see for the 20th)


  1. Once again fantastic photos! and... as always wishing I was there. Loving the starfish as well, shame i wasnt there to get some underwater shots!


  2. It's wonderful to see where you live via photos. And Ben is an ace photographer!
