Wild Stramash and baby Vole

Back home after a week in the wilderness. Hen Harrier, Goldfinches, Linnet and a handful of Twite as well as plenty of Swallows too. Lots of plants to ID and insects as well - like this Gold Ringed dragonfly.
The youngsters explored, did some conservation work (Rhoddie bashing) and spent a night in the caves. They also realised how hard it can be when the rain is non stop for three days! Meanwhile Stuart - yes the splendid knowledgeable chap who runs the Walking Safaris has also been busy with showing folks the Gannets feeding off Portnahaven, enjoying wee birds and Buzzards too. Best all all though he was with a group this afternoon observing a baby vole. There's something!
