The lesser-spotted whiskered sparrow

IMG_1692.JPG


It refused to stay looking straight at me for a better picture, but it was quite funny to see!

Re: Spotty thrush

So do I, tentatively, but I'm often wrong :)

I probably meant 'lined up'. I got up at 3am to go and watch the sun rise, is my excuse.

Spotty thrush

Three thrushes this morning, but only a picture of one. Sort of pale, and its spots are only sort of joined up...

Re: Update Munros

You can update hills individually by going to their page and ticking where it says 'You haven't climbed X yet.'

(But changing region is working ok for me...)

Re: New Covid law 26/4/2021

The legislation (as presented in single pages) could certainly be clearer - we've all got used to thinking of 'an area' as our local area. It does make a bit more sense once you realise that there are rules for every level, even where those levels don't currently exist. (What does seem to be missing...

Re: New Covid law 26/4/2021

It seems to depend on whether you read 'a level 3 area' as 'that area which is at level 3' (i.e. all of Scotland?), or 'a local authority area at level 3'. Presumably that's defined somewhere...

Re: Draft Report -where?

For ages I could only find drafts by starting another new report, and then choosing 'Open draft' from the same place where I'd found 'Save draft' originally.

That does work, but so does choosing 'Account Settings' from the top left hand menu, and then 'Manage Drafts'

Re: Multiple Bagging Maps

It's all or nothing - if you haven't found it already, 'All Hills' is the last option from the menu at top left.

Otherwise hill-bagging.co.uk lets you search on any combination you could possibly want.

Re: Postings 1 hour out

If you mean that it's an hour behind BST, you can change it for yourself by going to Account Settings -> Board Preferences -> Summer Time is in effect

Re: West Cairn Hill, Pentlands

I haven't done that bit, but the Cicerone Pentlands guide includes a similar walk (back from Craigengar over Byrehope Mount to Baddinsgill), and just says that it's a bit boggy - but so is a lot of the rest. I did it years ago as a detour from a full crossing of the Cauldstane Slap, finishing at Kir...

Re: Access restriction due to filming

It’s private land although the owners are very generous in allowing walkers and cyclists access. Most land is private land - that is the default situation that the access laws apply to, and I'm not sure there's any particular generosity involved in refraining from blocking other people's legal righ...

Re: Where's the picture ? - Scotland (part 3)

Oh, it's one of the wee hills at Mosspaul, I think - I didn't remember the name, but having looked it up it's Pikethaw Hill.

I didn't get nearly such a good view of all the little neighbouring hills, but it's a lovely landscape (although I think technically it's D+G!).

Re: Taxis around Kinlochewe Area?

On other public transport: There's a bus from Gairloch every morning (except Sunday) - sometimes it runs through Kinlochewe to Inverness or Dingwall, and sometimes via Dundonnell to meet the Ullapool-Inverness bus at Braemore junction. So it's a bit roundabout, but if the last day is a Tuesday or Sa...

Re: Meall Chuaich Questions

I was going to come and say I'd done it, but I see jmarkb already has! The southern route from near the hotel is a better track - the Cuaich route was fine, and gave a nice view ahead, but I did feel a bit like I shouldn't be there.

Re: Search Function

Thanks :) Next silly question - is there a way to search walks that isn't restricted by geography? Something like a list of all the easy 3-boot Munros, or all the difficult 5-boot ones? 100km from a central looking place - Fort Augustus - doesn't quite cover the north and south, but trying to do a n...
