We have a few wood pigeons that come into our garden, this is the first time I think I've seen one sunbathing on the lawn.

I made a joke about Fox Hunt previously, but I note that Jeremy is now talking about allowing another vote on hunting in England.

We got back into the Scottish National trail yesterday and completed the stage to Aberfeldy. There were lots of grouse and lambs about. The end of the stage through the Birks of Aberfeldy was nice if you like waterfalls especially the Falls of Moness.
