June on Dunalastair Estate

Early summer is a beautiful season on Dunalastair Estate. We are in midst of a heatwave with blue skies and stunning views and with amazing reflections in the still waters of the loch.

The light greens of the new tree leaves and wild flowers coming into bloom; magnificent dark purple orchids and pink ones will be out soon . The birds are nesting and house martins and swallows are swooping and soaring. The cuckoos have been heard frequently. The whooper swans have departed. A pair of swans are here all year round and usually produce cygnets although they don't always survive the many predators. There are several families of ducks with the young growing fast.

Dippers seem abundant this year and they get very upset when we walk the dog along the shore as they fear for their nests. So we keep the dog close.

On the farm the lambing is almost over and the calving too. We are busy getting the fields ready for silage and soon the sheep will go to the hill.
