Islay, Dec 07

We spent 7 days on the Island of Islay at the end of December, a nice place to avoid the nonsense of Christmas and New year. Daylight was very limited especially as we only saw the sun for a combined total of about 90 minutes in the whole 7 days. The wintering Barnacle Geese are one of the spectacles of the bird world.

  1. Hi John,

    Very nice pictures. A friend of mine was on Islay the same time as you and she sent some pictures from really wild weather and geese in the snow. If you are interested take a look at my blog.
    All the best
