Well temperatures have dropped but it's still sunny! Though farmers are desperate for rain to wash fertilizer into the fields and to help crops grow. But I'm making the most of the lovely weather! Last Saturday there were 16.2 hours of sunshine and temperatures reached 24 degrees C (76 F).

And here you can see Graemsay with Hoy High lighthouse!
Last weekend I went for a short walk "up the road". It was just glorious in the warm sun.

Sheep wondering what on earth I am doing... the lambs are growing fast now.

The ruined croft of Moan, with a scarecrow in the field! The scarecrow was to ward off crows and the like when the sheep and young lambs were in the field.
