Wet and Wild

After yesterday and a family bushcraft day where we did all the usual wilderness living skills AND witnessed lots of Sea Trout literally boiling in a pool at Gruinart this morning the tour was very wet and wild. Around the Merse where we found some shelter we watched waders; Dunlin, Sanderling, Redshank and Oystercatchers, the odd Bardwit and Curlew too, as well as the pair of Buzzards just sitting damp in a tree. It started to dry early afternoon but our folks had a ferry to catch and carried with them memories of a great holiday on Islay.
