My photo

When I 'wasted' my time at school, listening to Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd albums, I always used to dream about living in Scotland overlooking the sea, painting pictures, playing and recording music, fishing in my own bay, working on the land and not having to worry about money, and it's all here, O.K. except the money, so I don't worry about it...

Creating up

It was 10.30 by the time the birds were loaded, hard work but then again, what a way to end the day...
For the next 3 nights I'm on collection duty, picking up kids from the 'Wickerman' festival, that's going to make me feel old.

Mini Tornado ?

This is just one of the sheds destroyed by the winds last night...
Even though the field looks like the footprint left by a tornado the death toll was low thank goodness.
Now for the repairs, a busy weekend ahead...

Fox visit

So after days of work making the release pens safe for the birds, strimming, patching holes, putting up electric fences and so on, to keep them in and the cunning fox out, the first 1200 are spending their first night in the real world. What a great sight to see them perching in the trees and rooting for grubs.
Things have not gone so well at home though, while we were all out it seems a fox has paid us a visit and has taken 2 of our chickens, Olive and Bessie, 2 out of 1200 I can live with but 2 out of 6 has left the hen house looking very empty, not good.

Looking East

Starting feeding early today as things have fallen behind due to the weekend weather. Just had to take this photo, what a start to the day.

Great waves

The strong winds make for a good sea but they have also blown the sheds around and washed away the Lobster pot...
Tomorrow is clean up day.
