Brisk Skyte Round Scatness

Brisk Skyte Round Scatness by egeorgie at Garmin Connect - Details

This afternoon I didn't feel much like doing much at all, especially with a mild fever. Two paracetamol and a tuna roll later though (ah, trusty remedies) and I was donning my HRM and ipod and heading out the door suspiciously eyeing the apparent break in the weather, into the brisk north westerly wind that seems to be hell bent on battering the garden to within an inch of it's life today. Still, it was sunny and it is my most favourite walk, if anything was going to lift my spirits, this was it!

A lot of changes have taken place since the last time I walked round, the chicks have all hatched and flown the nest so venturing along the cliffs on the West side didn't see me being dive bombed by overly panicky tirricks, the seapinks have gone white and crispy and the place seems to have twice as many rabbits as it did a couple of months ago.  I noticed there were an awful lot of mushrooms and quite a few types at that.  Probably thanks to the horrendous wet weather that's hit Shetland of late!
