Re: West Highland Way 3 Apr - 10 Apr 2021

Hi Aitch74, In my opinion April is a good time to do the walk, before it gets like Sauchiehall Street on a Saturday afternoon! Also midgies not so fierce then, though weather may be a little unpredictable. I did the walk a few years ago now, you will meet others on the way too, both while walking an...

Re: Armchair enthusiast

Oh, and that picture 💚💚💚 The Orkneys? No, a little misleading of Caberfeidh, the photo is of Loch Garry which looks like the outline of Scotland. A wonderful view, no doubt someone more knowledgeable than me, on here, can tell what mountains are in the background. I have been to Orkney on holiday t...

Re: West highland way in 7 days

Loved reading this report. Reminds me of doing the walk myself 8 years ago now. Makes me want to do it again!

Re: Wasn't Sure If I Would Be Doing This Again.

Glad you got back out into the hills. It looks like a great wee hill, I will put it on my list to do now that we are allowed to travel and my days of doing big hills are done (age and severe plantar fasciitis :roll: )

Re: Local Lockdown Leg Stretcher

That looks like a great local walk. Will need to try it out when we're allowed to. By the way, your bird of prey is the ever popular Buzzard.

Re: My Daily Walk - The Local Park / John Muir Way

First bird is a Wren, beautiful song they have, second bird is a Goldfinch which, until about 5 years ago, I didn't know existed, now I see them everywhere!

Re: Denfinella's lockdown birdlife diary

Weird goose is, I think, an Egyptian Goose. Little brown bird, I agree, is a Female Chaffinch. The Greylag could be partially leucistic, an abnormality the bird hatches with and stays for life when some of its feathers are white, not albinism which is total lack of pigment. Quite common in blackbird...

Re: Goldcrest

Well done for getting a photo of UK's smallest bird. Not known for staying still long enough! Usually we have lots of photos of empty branches where the Goldcrest used to be!

Re: Long-tailed tits

Love these gorgeous wee birds. We see a small flock near us fairly often, twittering away to each other. Recently have started to see them only in pairs, not noticed any nesting yet.

A Boris walk in Renfrew

I've not been out in the hills much in recent years but one walk I love to do is my local one, along the River white Cart to the Clyde. Usually bird watching on the way but since lockdown have been walking it the long way to get my exercise in for the day. Takes about an hour with no stops. Start at...

Re: School hillwalking club

I did a lot of walking in countryside when at school, I won't call it hill walking, no munros in north east England. We also had weekends away as part of courses; geography, geology and art as well as for Duke of Edinburgh awards. This was some time ago though, I left school 1976 :crazy: I would ima...

Re: Garden Butterflies

Lovely photos CharlesT. There does seem to have been an explosion in butterfly numbers this year. Great to see them thriving.
