Off to Glencoe – I will enjoy the drive.

I am off today to Glencoe for my chat at the Clachaig Inn in Glencoe tonight so I hope it goes well. I will enjoy the drive and see the big hills again. I have not been away since after Christmas so it will be a marvelous journey. I hope to drop off two axes over the next few days with Mick Tighe of the Scottish Mountain Heritage Collection on my way back on Wednesday all being well. Well worth a if you have any old gear donating to them!

I had a great walk yesterday with the weather superb and the sun out again and I saw my little birds again not so dramatic but still wonderful. I got some good information from Birding Ecosse   http://www.birdingecosse who I met and may go on a wee local course with them when I get some time. It was good to talk with someone with so much information on the local birds.

Well must finish my chat off and head away will be in touch and the weather looks great.
