Brief May update

A brief update because we're rushing around getting ready to depart for our annual holiday!  
The island is bursting with colour at the moment with a carpet of Thrift and Squill at the north and south end, hidden patches of bluebells, ragged robin and cuckoo flowers in the wetlands and bird's foot trefoil on the cloddiau.  A film crew led by an Austrian producer who have been documenting the variety of livestock movements and their interactions with wildlife throughout Europe, visited us for the third and last time to capture some of the spring colour - as well as a "staged" lamb rescue from Ogof Hir!

Morwenna returned home after a prolonged visit to the mainland (many thanks to Linda and Richard at Richlin goat farm) along with her newly born kid, Snowdrop.  After a bit of a head butting session with Eira they were glad to be re-united and Snowdrop enjoys a lot of fuss, especially from Steve!
