A Woodcock casualty on MullHere I am, lying in bed after spending my first exhilarating day on the Isle of Mull. Although it's been cold, I've been totally wrapped up in my Lapland/Berghaus gear feeling very toasty!
Since my last entry I have been working quite hard on various projects ahead of my journey to Scotland. I actually started my journey two days ago when I set off from home to catch the Hammersmith & Shitty (should be 'City' but this line is often more like a gravy train, hence my moniker for it) and Victoria lines to connect with the overground at Tottenham Hale. To cut a very long story shorter, none of the desired tube lines were running so I spent nearly 3 hours walking and getting on alternative trains doing a journey that would normally take 50 minutes.
I didn't get moody - for which I'm pretty proud. The next morning I was in Glasgow, as part of my urban birding tour of cities in Britain and Europe. More about that tomorrow. Right now, I am preparing a talk that I'm giving to Mull Bird Club tomorrow night.
To be continued......
