A Mass of Sprats

Kilchoan Early Bird has sent this picture showing shoals of sprats close in to the shore.  When we were kayaking in Kilchoan Bay on Sunday, we saw them in large numbers in the shallow water at the back of the bay.  Their arrival has coincided with bumper catches of mackerel off the coast, with fishermen reporting hauls of over a hundred.

Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for the photo.
