Rathlin is special for many reasons, mainly as a roosting site for puffins and many different seabirds who migrate there each year. The seabird centre, run by the RSPB, gives access to a viewing platform to watch the many nesting sites. It was also the place that Marconi used for his first transmissions across the Atlantic.
One of our local authors, Bernie McGill, wrote a cracker novel based on Rathlin called The Watch House- definitely worth a read (imho) - set at the time of the modern world starting to impinge on island life.

Things otherwise here are fairly routine - I've discovered that I work best to deadlines and without those practising is just a chore. "I sing for other people" someone said recently and it resonated with me. Still no dates for concerts as the arts centres and touring venues have no date to open and will need weeks to get the venues ready for people again. But, there's lots of work getting done in the garden - it's finally taking shape and Tom has just finished building me a garden glass house made from reclaimed windows and wood - I knew there was a reason I married him lol
