A Warm March Day

Yesterday the temperature soared to what must be a March record of 19C, and today, with the sky slightly less hazy and the wind lighter, the mercury has pushed up to 21C. We walked through the village this morning in bright sunshine, with not a cloud in the sky.

The picture looks across from Ormsaigbeg to the hill called Glas Bheinn, with the ruins of St Congan's Church at left and the old manse, now Meall mo Chridhe, a restaurant with rooms, at right. The line of white croft houses is in the township of Kilchoan.

This picture looks southwest to the huddle of building round the village shop, The Ferry Stores, and along the front of the township of Ormsaigbeg.

As we passed the parish church we came across this chaffinch alternately staring at his reflection in the wing mirror of the Kilchoan School minibus, and...

....attacking what he probably thought was a rival.

    As we were preparing to drive away from the church yesterday we had a chaffinch doing the same thing with a wing mirror despite us being in the car. He had obviously done it on both side judging by the white deposits.
