Lovely morning for a bit of fishing but poor forecast. Went out anyway as supplies of prawns at the Inn are running low and tomorrow’s ‘cast is pretty poor again. Looking back to the moorings and over to Camusterrach, both looking fresh and bright in the morning sun.
As well as hearing the cuckoo a couple of days ago the skuas are back and this one did not seem at all bothered how close to the boat he came. They used to be a little bit timid, not with the gulls which they bully out of the way for the bait.
After three fleets and enough prawns on board it was off back in. Gone are the days I battle out the weather so leaving the Mairead M to it I headed east and home.
On the way up the road watched the Kingfisher racing in past St Island.
Threatened to cloud over and rain but cleared up and turned out to be a nice day ashore. Landed prawns for the Inn and Loch Ness Inn and home for an afternoon snooze. Inn heaving this lunchtime with people and cars every where. If any indication of the summer to come then it is going to be a busy one.
