Islay Natural History Trust News

The Natural History Centre in Port Charlotte is now open for the summer and there are sea creatures in the new touch-pool tank and the refurbished sealife tank, and the frogspawn in the freshwater aquarium is already hatching into tadpoles. The first Wheatear and the first Sand Martin have already arrived on the island, though may not be liking the cold northerlies which greeted them. There will be a slide presentation at the Centre on Thursday April 10th, when we are delighted to welcome back Mick Durham, a bird photographer from Dumfries and Galloway who, this time last year, gave us a memorable slide presentation concentrating on Peregrine, Hen Harrier and Merlin, all in his local area. This year he will be ranging further afield in a talk entitled 'Home and Away'. We can look forward to some further wonderful images. Malcolm Ogilvie
