I am feeling almost human again. I could do with a nights sleep but at long last the wind has died down, the power is on more often than it’s off and the sleet, snow and hail squalls are interspersed with sunshine. It is much colder. I had a very wet and miserable walk with the dogs this morning and our post lunch promenade was no better. Tomorrow I'm moving down to Oban for a few days and then I intend coming back as Loch Creran is unique round here. It has sponges, giant mussels, red seaweeds and special worms plus lots of birds for a Scottish Loch. It is also a grand place to sit and stare.
Earlier on whilst struggling to stand up I was passed by a flock of what looked like Fieldfare. They were flying at subsonic speed but only just. They could have been anything but that is what came to mind when I saw them. I was thawing out and enjoying a mug of tea in the van when I noticed several Thrushes. Some big ones and some small ones. They are Thrushes, shall I risk getting closer? In for a penny.
Enjoy what is left of the weekend. I’ll catch up tomorrow when I should have power and a good internet service.
