Good Morning Everyone,
Nothing much to report from Anguilla except still dry dry dry.
I think your bird Frank might be a young Pearly Eyed Thrasher, they have a very rich chirrup and are bold and cheeky. I stand to be corrected though by anyone with better knowledge than I have. Also Isabel's Pulmeria we always called the Wild Frangipani, so am glad to know its proper name.
Praying and hoping for a quiet Hurricane Season.
My best to all,
Little Bay Barn

God Evening to Everyone who is  part of, or follows Stormcarib.
Start of another season, I hope we are all prepared, Hope I am, this is the first season since I built my house in 1989 that I actually have hurricane shutters on all my windows, also have a generator winterized ( if that is the right word) in my living room as  I thought it might go walk about if I left it in the garage. We have had NO RAIN on the Searocks, despite the pics from Antigua. It has been overcast but none of the wet stuff. We had rain like that (8 inches in 4 hours) a few years ago but that was in November not June.
I wish all the very best for the coming season,
Joanie Howard

P.S. Many congratulations to Real Deal for winning the Anguilla Day boat race.

Good Evening all from a cold (46F) North of England. I don't have any weather reports from Anguilla but hope there has been some rain, but just wanted to wish John Fuller well from afar.I don't know John personally except through Stormcarib but his mother was an old girlfriend of my father's way back when and I always stayed with her at The Lord Nelson Club in the old days when I flew through Antigua to Anguilla. Amazing the connections we all have in the Caribbean.

Sadly I had to leave Anguilla last weekend and return to the North of England, I am feeling the cold it was only 34F when I landed in Paris, having left St Martin in 86F.
The rainfall on the Searocks for the whole of March and up to 14 April had only been .84 of an inch, I think they have had more rain in the west end of Anguilla but it won't have been much, also St Martin looked dry as a bone from the ferry going across.
I have had a wonderful 6 months in Anguilla, in fact I think the whole Island has had a good season, judging by the private jets and super yachts and the fact that one had to make a reservation every time in almost all of the restaurants. I was lucky enough to do 40 dives with the wonderful Dougie and Special 'D' Diving, and attach a pic of him and his boat at Dog Island.
The only sad thing is to say how terribly distressing it was to watch Notra Dame Cathedral burn on the TV,  I asked myself what national building burning here would make me cry like the French crowds were in Paris? A terrible tragedy.
I wish all a quiet Hurricane season and a great summer.
