December - a dreich day
Well here we are in December already. Arrrgghhh! Where does time go. Anyway, today is what is known as a "dreich" day meaning dull and depressing. Well it's December and the sun can't shine all the time. I had to put on waterproofs to go and feed Charlie the barn cat, and the hens. It was a bit breezy too but not really windy. The sheep that are grazing in my field always choose the sheltered spots, a dip in the ground, or in the shelter of a dyke (wall). Stromness across the water with the Hamnavoe ferry looking like the only bright spot at a distance!
Lots of geese in the fields around Graemsay at the moment.....
Rain is expected for a few days yet but it could be a lot worse so I'm not complaining!
