For the last few day the island has been experiencing some strong westerly winds. Walking around has been difficult but I've managed to take a few photographs of the changing light and sea conditions.
Enormous waves crashed through the Dun gap and spray regularly washed over Ruaival.
The winds have also sent sea spray across the bay. Shame I washed the windows the day before!!
The forecast suggests these winds will continue for the next 3-4 days. Maybe the weather will bring some interesting birds There are certainly large numbers of turnstones and meadow pipts on island at the moment but one never knows when a rare bird might be spotted taking shelter or passing through.
