We're not leaving.

An eventful end to the month with the local social life going down well. A spit roast lamb was a delicious event and a Swedish candle to keep us warm - a big thank you to the Pink Kipper Club for that one. Roll on next year!
On the wildlife front the last two days of July had similar sightings but one day was blisteringly hot and the next day was a wash out. The usual suspects were seen on both days with the highlights being the return to the nest of the first fledged WT Eagle. Obviously they are typical of the younger generation - we're not leaving home!
We didn't see Otters on Saturday but when I picked one up on Sunday the previous days guests were just driving past - lucky or what?! The Common Seals are an ever present beast but sometimes you get a close one.
The reptiles are still showing well but I've not managed a photograph yet - must try harder. The poor weather on Sunday didn't stop the Mountain Hare from showing but it was the only one we saw.
The only other notable event was getting a Mull tick when I picked up a Sandwich Tern. Let's see what August brings.
