Sunday 27th January
Well, thank goodness for the Fulmars, yesterday when I wrote the entry for the blog, it was quite calm outside with the wind just starting to pick up… and then later on, it certainly was windy with a good few dirty showers through the night added to the mix, net result, not as much sleep as the hailstones clattered on the bedroom window.. still this morning, no slates off, thank goodness!!!
My intention today had been to carry out a count for the big garden birdwatch, but not many birds were around due to the wind still blowing away strongly… no morning ferry today from Port Ellen and tomorrow no sailing from Oban to Colonsay either. I suppose, that it the time of year when we can expect some disruption because of the weather.
