Monday 22nd September

Yesterday Martin had been out for a wee walk, only a 12 mile trek up Beinn Uraraidah and Sgorr, bet Martin was tired afterwards... His highlights were as follows, 5 Snipe, 3 Red Grouse, 5 Hen Harrier (2 males and 3 ringtail), 2 Golden Plover, 4 Wheatear, 2 Buzzards and a Kestrel up on the actual summit. This evening, as I write this, it has just started to rain, I wonder how much we are going to get, the rain gauge at present is hardly registering any rain so far for this month! I heard today that some of the Distilleries are needing water. May be the rain will help clean the glass roof that we have, the manufacturers claim that it is self cleaning, so here is hoping that this is true and help wash away the bird poo on it! It certainly did work the last time it rained....
