(Where's your) Spirit of Adventure?

Just one bird worth mentioning today - a stunning male Red-throated Pipit at Lower Leogh, found by volunteer Becki Rosser as she was making her way home to the Puffinn late this afternoon. Nice! It certainly lifted spirits on a day of cold NW'ly winds!
Speaking of spirits, the NTS Cruiseship The Spirit of Adventure arrived today with 280 passengers onboard. We were all up and ready to meet them at 0830 with Welcome Packs, to give them Guided Walks and with a wonderful dispaly of crafts and tasty treats at the Hall. However, as in every year they never managed to get ashore (due to a slight swell) and eventually gave up and sailed away. What a waste of a morning for all concerned!!
