So much for my intention to post every day this week. Tomorrow my niece and her husband from Exeter arrive for a long weekend. They haven't been up to Lewis before so I'm really looking forward to their company and to showing them around. I'm hoping that we may see some eagles and perhaps a peregrine if we are really lucky. There will be plenty of insects life for Helen to admire though. At the moment there is an abundance of tiny Common Froghoppers. They are only 5 or 6 mm long. The cuckoo spit that is often seen on plants contains the larval stage of this little insect.
