Sunshine at last

The weather during April has not been too welcoming, lots of rain and too chilly for spring. May is much better and the days are sunnier. Temperatures are climbing and could be 19C by the weekend. Even the local deer enjoy a sunbathe in the surrounding woods and gardens.

Coastguard Rescue

Watched the Coastguard Rescue helicopter on Loch Ness practising rescuing a dummy body in the water ... just outside the window. Better than TV.

Local red squirrels in garden

More native red squirrels are entering the garden after discovering the tasty things on the menu put out for the birds. They just love peanuts and sunflower hearts.

Blue sky thinking

Wonderful clear blue sky all day but with a slight chill in the air. Should be lots of stars to see tonight. Walked down to Farigaig pier on Loch Ness and soaked up the amazing views. Most of the snow has now gone from the mountain tops at lower levels and enjoyed the feeling that Spring is on its way.
