It was a real surprise to find this red squirrel visiting Skip on a couple of mornings last week. I assume it was just exploring new territory. I've not seen red squirrels in the garden before, although when I first came to Wamphray there were some in the forest plantation on the other side of the village.
It was great to see another visitor to Scotland recently - Flying Scotsman! We caught up at Bo'ness where the locomotive was on show for the day. A big crowd had come to see it, such is the hype surrounding this very special locomotive.
At this time of year, there is always something I like to see. I headed to Drumlanrig Castle for a bluebell experience!
The walks through the grounds of Drumlanrig are always interesting, whatever the time of year. The drifts of bluebells were spectacular last week.
