Monday 25 February

Another day of blazing sunshine, but today there was slightly more wind, making it feel a bit cold at times. We still managed 7C / 45F, and it tempted me out for an amble of 9 km / 5½ miles to Steinish and the Cockle Ebb. There were quite a few geese about, but also about a dozen that had come to grief on an overhead phoneline near Goathill Farm. Their skeletal remains were scattered along a farmtrack, not very nice. The sheep are still fat, and no lambs in sight or earshot.
