What a change in the weather from yesterday! It's VERY windy today. Gusting to about 35mph at the moment but due to increase to potentially severe gale force tonight. Meanwhile some of the young cattle stock from a neighbouring farm have been put into my field at the back of the house to graze it down for winter. The field hasn't been grazed this year as I've been having a new stock proof fence put up. That's now in place so the wee beasties can go in and graze away for a few weeks till they are taken inside to sheds for the winter.
These young stock watched curiously as I hung out a window to take their photo. I can imagine them asking each other "What does she think she's doing?"!
Meanwhile we have ongoing technical problems with our ferry. We're waiting to hear when these might be resolved, with currently limited runs and limited cargo delivery. But it has to be said it seemed to be making good speed against the wind tonight, although it sailed back to harbour on a more sheltered route.
