There seems to have been several people from Devon on North Uist over the past few weeks. Apart from jmy wife and me I know two other couples that were there. We got back yesterday. Did you see the Snowy Owl?. We missed the fantastic Skua passage on 13 and 14 May as we were still on Lewis. Five hundred plus Long-tailed and six hundred plus Poms. Roger

Hi we missed the snowy owl.



What is a surprise to me is the two replies we have had are fromm wales and Devon.

We are going to wales soon, as our daughter lives North Wales and she is a volunteer for the National Coastguard Institute and from their watch on Angelsey They have Raven and Perigrin nesting close by.
