The calm before the storm

We had a lovely calm morning here on Islay this morning - but the weather forecast is for things to build up throughout the day until the winds reach above 50mph this evening, accompanied by very heavy rain.  I thought it might be interesting to take a little bit of "before and after" video of the burn that flows down the glen from the Gearach, down through Bruaich Jerich and past the Wildlife Centre.  The clips above show it at fairly normal autumn levels - but we would expect to see a significant rise over the next 24 hours if the forecast is correct - and it usually is....

I will try and get up into Bruaich Jerich again around lunchtime tomorrow and see what it looks like then....

Severe gales of the type that are forecast for this evening are completely normal for this time of year here.


  1. If you have never met an Eclectus I must warn you that it only takes a moment for these birds to steal your heart away. They can make you laugh, make your heart melt, and at times make you want to bite nails because they can be terribly hard-headed little critters. For more information visit

  2. On the off chance that you have never met an Eclectus I should caution you that it just pauses for a minute for these winged creatures to win your love away. They can make you snicker, make your heart liquefy, and on occasion make you need to nibble nails since they can be horrendously determined little critters. For more data visit
