After the wild weather yesterday things had calmed down somewhat this morning. The day started sunny and clear with fine views across to a field where there were at least 4 hares foraging. I’ve never seen so many in one go and there were plenty more around.
A circular walk took in bluebells on the edge – can’t say I’ve ever seen bluebells on a cliff top before. But then I was also quite surprised to find a beautiful little patch of woodland within a few hundred yards of the cliff – trees being somewhat scarce on Orkney.
It was quite a magical little dell and of course I got to hug a tree (not like me at all!), and take more pictures of bluebells. Funny seeing them in June – feel like I’ve gone back in time by about a month.
Out of the wood it was back to the more typical views of Orkney and home for tea and scones. Later the weather closed in again. With gale force 8 possibly 9 expected later.
