The day started quite early, with a breathtaking sunrise - this pic was taken at 4.08am.
A little later, whilst having breakfast, a sparrowhawk swooped in for some breakfast of his own, in the shape of a sparrow (or two). The chorus of chittering sparrows has since been silenced, and they do not venture anywhere near the garden.
Cruiseliner Corinthian also called round, to afford its passengers a cursory glance at the delights of Lewis (and Harris). Not as sunny as yesterday, although the sun did come out by evening.
