As spring pulls back the curtains

As spring pulls back its curtains and the daffodils and snowdrops burst into full bloom, whilst the primroses and violets begin to open their new buds to the fresh spring air as the days draw out and the spring lambs are born in the fresh growing spring pastures, the trees begin to awaken and the birds look for their nesting sites for this years fledglings to hatch.
The eagles have returned to their nests, Red deer begin slowly but surely move to higher ground as the daily temperature rises and the days get brighter and longer.
On a fishy note whilst expecting the cetaceans to move back into the waters as the water temperature rises and the plankton on nice hot sunny days will begin to bloom making plenty of food for the basking sharks to start appearing along the coastline in may, as well as mackerel moving into local waters to be caught from the shore.
This year we are glad to welcome an otter back into Tobermory, seen very regularly all around the pontoons and in the bay catching its prey from the sea bed.
We are now getting ready for this year's season on the island opens its doors on the 23rd of March for the Visitor Information and now taking bookings for many land and sea tours.
