Life at Coastcard has been quiet recently as I have been 'up north', enjoying the landscape, seascape, heritage and literature of southern Scotland and the north-east of England.
I spent a couple of nights in Durham, and visited three very different islands:
- Bute (west coast of Scotland)
- Inchmahome (on the Lake of Menteith, Scotland's only lake)
- Lindisfarne, aka Holy Island (off Northumbria).
We were in a different part of Scotland, but you can read about the Loch Garten Ospreys here on the RSPB blog. You can read about plans for BirdFair 2009 here.
