Now settled into a routine! The weather has provided an opportunity to explore both the local and wider areas around the Beauly Firth in the last few days, which, scenically, is very attractive. I realise one of the things I miss on Islay are large deciduous woodlands and mature trees and hedgerows along roads, so being here is a very enjoyable change. Amazed thar several Chiffchaffs are still singing lustily ( is that the intent behind the song,I ask?) but Willow Warblers appear to have ceased completely. Local walks still producing new breeding records and finding a small Tree Sparrow population was a nice surprise.
Of course things came to a stop to watch the Wimbledon finals!!!!
