Well, pretty inevitably, Mull over the New Year has been cancelled. Briefly toyed with looking at Norfolk, but given the infection rates are pretty high where we live, we decided against it.
Hopefully the vaccines will be ruled out soon.
Cheers James. Could be a lot worse though.
I think if the Mull trip is cancelled we may try and head up in Feb half term. I’m supposed to be going to Yellowstone with a bunch of mates in April as well but I can’t see that going ahead.
Well that’s our trip to the Cot Valley cancelled. :-C The cottage owners have been fantastic. Another family from Cardiff have had to cancel as well.
Mull is not looking good at this present moment in time.
So I’ve taken a calculated risk and booked a dog friendly location by St Just. There appears to be a footpath right by the cottage that takes us down to Porth Nanven. So that’ll be the hounds morning walk sorted. :t:
Still hoping for a day trip on the Scillonian as well.
Have been looking at Somerset in May, but also Cornwall during October half term. The Scillonian is running day trips to the Isle of Scilly. Assuming the weather is ok would this be worth doing? Or too late in the season?
I've bought Best Birdwatching Sites in Cornwall and Scilly by Sara...
A late start (07:30) meant we caught a bit of traffic on the A9. Not too bad though. Weather conditions were absolutely appalling the further South we drove. Detoured over to Fisherrow. A good few Eider were around and a handful of Scoter. nailing down the species was beyond my ID skills...
A quiet day today before tomorrow's drive home. Stocked up on pies from the Highland Bakery before going for a walk around Anagach Woods. not too much in the way of birds other than the usual Coal Tits.
Next it was off to Loch Garten. Down came the snow again and is was absolutely...
We all headed over to the Applecross area today. Stopped off at our usual place for haggis and bacon rolls with brown sauce:eat:. Good views of Red Deer on the way up the Pass of the Cattle. At the top the car park was covered in snow. No worries at it has been in the past when we've been...
Cheers Ken. The boys (and I, I must admit) loved the snow. It was the first time the hound had been in it and he kept sliding along on his shoulder for some strange reason3:-).
For the brief time I saw the Caper she was amazing. The sun caught her in flight and she was full of gold, bronze and...
Got my order of days mixed up - old age!3:-)
Set off at about 07:00 with the pup heading for the Corran Ferry. A couple of Roe Deer and Red-legged Partridges were seen on the way. The ferry costs £8.50 each way for the car and all passengers. Stopping to the left of the ferry we watched...
Set off at 09:00 for Findhorn Bay. Back in the house by 09:45:-O Summer tyres and the snow did not mix! Decided to err on the side of caution.
Took the boy for our circular walk around past the Spa. As usual there were good numbers of Siskin, Chaffinch, Goldfinch and the odd Greenfinch...
