North and a Little Way South

Wednesday, July 5th 2017

The ringing team were on the island in Loch Borralie on Monday.  They had to row across.

Landing

No time was given for this photo but I bet it was 11am - tea time.

Refreshments

Yesterday they were heading to the Stacks.  Isn't this an amazing photograph?

The Stacks.

The Stacks

As can be seen from these photographs there is blue sky and no rain.  Just a little different to Foxglove.  The rain did eventually stop about four, but even the gentle breeze did not move the rain drops.

Raindrops

Greater Spearwort's flower shape is good for catching those raindrops.

It was a good day to be inside, starting with the moths.

More volunteers, including Jenny, arrived and sorting the store room was on the list, to make room for Ann's cakes on the FGC 25 weekend. 

Sorting the store room

Whilst waiting for the net ride discs to dry after painting, Christine continued with the task of preparing the leaflets for FGC 25.

Sophie helped with the store room and leaflets, whilst Ruth and Rachel folded raffle tickets.  I did not venture out in the rain, but Peter was strimming net rides ready for CES.  We achieved a great deal.  Thank you so much to all the volunteers who worked so hard today.

And finally thanks to Pat and Glennis for writing and marking the quiz.  Chris Heap was the eventual winner.
