Yes at last 1HR is beginning to feel like home .. most of our cardboard boxes have been unpacked and we can see clear carpet underfoot instead of wading through clutter.
Our ospreys have also made themselves at home in the treetops just a couple of hundred yards away across the wheat field outside our door. Yesterday we watched the aggressive male osprey drive off a red kite that got too close to the nest in a display of ariel combat against the blue skies that had to be seen to be believed.
There are still deer around and Helen invariably comes close to a few while on her early morning walks with Loki. The roe are their usual skittish selves but the red deer treat the forest as their home and are as curious about Helen and her dog as they are about the deer. Loki takes it all in his stride as if born to it, which in effect he was with his first two years or so spent on the Isle of Luing before three years as a ‘townie’ in Comrie. There is no doubt he appreciates being back in the wild as much as we do.
We are to be connected to basic ‘slow speed’ internet tomorrow, or the next day, so there’s every chance I will be blogging again soon.
Cheers for now – Don 🤠👍
Thanks are due to Helen for the pics taken on her morning walk with Loki —
