Believe it or not, I found somewhere on Islay that I'd never been to before! Malcolm had recommended this walk in Barradale some time ago, so, with the sun shining and cumulus clouds providing near optimal photo opportunities, I set off from Cattadale and walked round to Loch Bharradail. This really was a lovely walk. The highlights were about half a dozen pairing Green Hairstreak butterflies and these two beetles which I got quite excited about - especially the bigger one. Hopefully we'll get them identified soon.
Photographs, or even short video clips, are particularly welcome.
We look forward to hearing from you
