On to Howaback where there were plenty of Fieldfares and Redwings, a very large flock of Twite and good numbers of waders and duck. The hound disappeared after a rabbit so I spent longer there than anticipated but in the sunshine and gentle weather there was not much to complain about.

On Friday I'd gone into Kirkwall, couple of things from the PDC.
Gull at the back looks dark to my eye...
Hopefully the charge for plastic bags will reduce this sight in the future.
Very windy today, Peregrine passed the bedroom window as I sipped my early morning cuppa, then a Sparrowhawk low between the cars from the kitchen. Could barely make headway at The Links and retreated to hiding behind the dyke and watching around the burn. Best was on the way back, these gulls feeding around the plough.

Jobs to do yesterday p.m.
Rather a lot of hours later....
