The high winds on Thursday didn't appear to cause too much damage but they did bring down some trees onto the electric cables so there was no power from 19:30 on Thursday until mid afternoon on Friday. Needless to say I wasn't out in any of that. The weekend was taken up with other activities too with Monday being the only day I went out. The best sighting on Monday was the White-tailed Eagle having a quick look at us as it swept over the shop.
Tuesday was a much better day for going out. I had to fill the car up too - something to be avoided at £1.44 per litre!! Using the time and fuel wisely I picked up PS along the way and we went in search of wildlife along the way. We picked up a 140 strong flock of Barnacle Geese not long after the visit to the garage.
