Murder in the skies.


A grey and latterly wet day. With more rain expected we are battening down the hatches. Still no sign of any thunderstorms although the weather warnings remain in place for the next 3 days.

I continue to struggle to get my covid injections recognised either in England or Scotland. The problem is that I have had one dose in each country and as such cannot get either country to issue me a prove of injection. It’s not an uncommon problem but one that currently seems intractable.

This will mean that I have 2 doses in Scotland so they will be able to issue a compliance certificate. I have checked and 3 doses of the Pfizer has been passed as safe in The USA.

We are working tomorrow and are formulating our last hurrah in the Highlands for when we leave in mid October. The top picture is of a white tailed eagle taken by Bill not unfortunately up here. They have released more breeding pairs in the IOW so hopefully these magnificent creatures will become an increasing common sight down south as well!
