New(ish) Islay Nature Blog

Whether it's widlife, flowers, insects or anything in between, you'll find it on the new and very informative nature blog from the Islay Natural History Trust who have their base and visitor centre in Port Charlotte, next to the youth hostel. The blog started in May and is updated very frequently, often serveral times a day. The blog is maintained and moderated by members of the management committee of the Islay Natural History Trust (INHT), George Jackson, Joan Brown, Malcolm Ogilvie, James How, Ian Brooke, Margaret Brooke and Carl Reavey, and the Visitor Centre staff, Mark Shields and Becky Williamson. So far I have seen many very interesting posts, just as many very beautiful images and even a video of a "slow worm." Looking at all the posts make you realise how incredibly varied and stunningly beautiful the Islay nature really is.

Although the blog is maintained by members of the management committee they ask and appreciate your cooperation as well. If you live on Islay or have visited the island and took some photographs or short video's of Islay's natural world and/or would like to share you nature notes you can send them to The web address of the blog is, you can also read the updates in your newsreader or follow them on Google Friend Connect. I'd like to thank the trust for sharing all these beautiful photographs and information with us all.
