Land up in the Hills of Orkney


Some minor hiccups with the orkneycrofts site, mainly resolved but having a coder sitting in Czech is not ideal.

Hardcore birdy walk last sunday, walked across sandwick in gales and hailstorms, though interspersed with some sunny bits. 5-6 miles heavy going, felt it the next day. Highlight was 40-50 skylarks and 50 twite hiding from the wind in a turnip field. Pleased to have done it even with harsh weather.

Became a Great Uncle last week. Jack 3.5 lbs 6 weeks premature was born in Aberdeen Hospital. Hope his somewhat blighted stars turn out to be good for him in the end.
