Another of my Hebridean friends – Misha. Normally she doesn’t like me taking her photo but I got away with it last week.
A seal in Stornoway Harbour.
I have previously identified the seals in the harbour as Grey Seals but this looks more like a Common Seal. Sadly the photo wasn’t as good as ones from previous years. And I am anything but an expert on identifying mammals wot live in the water.
On the golf course there is a dog-leg on the first hole and you cannot see where the ball ends up when it has been hit the first time. When people have cleared the dog-leg and it is safe for the next group to play off the tee they ring the bell on this stand of trees.
I have always wanted to catch a picture of someone ringing it.
Librarian was surprised that The Island ofthe Dead was large enough to have had a building or buildings on it. A small boat went past it a couple of days ago giving me an opportunity to show an idea of the scale. It is obviously larger than some people thought but I still wouldn’t like to live on there if I sleep-walked.
This is what salt and wind can do to a metal fence post.
