Mild insomnia does have its benefits…

The sunrise this morning was fantastic and not being a good sleeper at the moment enabled me to witness it.

ImageAnother day without boats meant that we continued with painting the island’s shop in the morning and then we spent some time looking for potential breeding pairs of chough on the eastern side of the island.  I went to the very south of the island and watched a pair for about an hour; they seemed very interested in possible nest sites and chased off other chough but there were no signs that they had young – perhaps next year.

The weather looks interesting tomorrow with heavy rain and up to 50mph gusts of wind – might be a day for more inside work.
