Back home – where flights are cancelled!

We’re home now after our wee jaunt to the Isle of Mull. We’ve been catching up over the weekend with all things Garybuie and of course Yohan, our WWOOFer. He did an excellent job of looking after the place and left today, leaving us home alone.
Yesterday, the rain poured with varying gusto so I decided to open up the Winter Spa for our feathered friends.


It was much appreciated – especially the unexpected salad bar!

Today has seen a huge improvement on the weather front and everyone has had a happy, relaxed look about them; preening or just enjoying the sunshine…



…or water sports!


Flights are cancelled at the moment for the adult muscovies as they have undergone their annual moult. However, primary feathers are beginning to grow back in as you can see with Biggles, so normal service should resume soon!


The young muscovies however have a full set of flight gear – it’s just that they’re not quite sure what to do with it as yet!

To finish this post, here are a few random shots from Mull…

      Actually, the Highlanders had produced a road block, some of them sitting in the road, some just generally loitering! We had to inch forward, trying to encourage them to get off the (very narrow) road. They did, but in their own good time! I guess you can’t rush a clan gathering!!!

    Spectacularly gorgeous photos! No favorites among them this timeβ€”too many beauties to choose! Welcome home, even if the Highlanders hindered your passage until they were good and ready for it. πŸ™‚

      At least when the highlanders do eventually decide to move, they do so slowly and with some directional purpose. Sheep, on the other hand,
      can skitter off in any and all illogical directions, usually just when you think they’re going to stay put!
