Day 21 of #30DaysWild – Summer Solstice

So I’m back to blogging a day or two behind. Our original WiFi activation date has been put back by a week and a half. I’m a little annoyed especially given that I work from home.. on the computer. I’d moved my office over to the new address expecting internet but alas it’s not happened.…Continue reading Day 21 of #30DaysWild – Summer Solstice

Day 19 of #30DaysWild – Baby Starling & the Pants Moth

I’m sure some of you are sick of starlings by now but I still love them and they are everywhere. Today I thought I’d share a few photos of a fledgling starling. This little one is in a nest above our driveway. Nesting in the guttering of the house two doors down. I think this…Continue reading Day 19 of #30DaysWild – Baby Starling & the Pants Moth

Day 17 of #30DaysWild – Empty feeders & Starling Silhouette Photos

Saturday was hot, in fact this whole week is hot. Really hot. Many of my regular readers will know but for those new wild folks my PoTS causes a lot of issues with temperature regulation, as a result I’m pretty heat intolerant. It makes doing almost anything a huge challenge. This whole heat wave has…Continue reading Day 17 of #30DaysWild – Empty feeders & Starling Silhouette Photos

Day 7 of #30DaysWild – Mixing Bird Seed

Busy day with my OT work today. I did manage to find a bit of time to pop into the garden and top up the bird feeders. I actually mix my own bird seed, sort of. After much experimentation I’ve finally found a mix of seeds that satisfy the whole range of garden birds. So…Continue reading Day 7 of #30DaysWild – Mixing Bird Seed

Last full day on Skye, Silver stags and Scottage Cheese.

Today was our last full day on Skye… and I spent most of it in bed. After a total sleep fail lastnight I woke up feeling groggy, PoTSy and generally pretty naff. I snuggled up in bed with my kindle and finally dragged myself out of bed after lunch to enjoy the last few daylight…Continue reading Last full day on Skye, Silver stags and Scottage Cheese.

Skye Holiday, Birds and a Sunset

We’re nearing the end of our holiday and I woke up feeling a bit less PoTSy and a bit less fatigued so we decided to venture out. We stopped at Broadford to visit the shop ‘Love from Skye’ an amazing jeweller (who also sells online) they have some really beautiful stuff and I’m seriously tempted…Continue reading Skye Holiday, Birds and a Sunset

Rest day on Skye, wildlife photography

I woke up feeling pretty rough this morning so today turned into a rest day. My pain and fatigue made my chances of achieving anything pretty slim so mum helped me set up camp just outside the garden wall so I could watch the birds in the rock pools. I did move as far as…Continue reading Rest day on Skye, wildlife photography

Skye Holiday: Portree Boat Trip

I’m starting today’s post with last night.. does that make sense? well anyway after I blogged lastnight me and mum spent some time outside, there was a slight chance the aurora would be visible and it would seem it was. Mum had to help me out with the photography since my night vision is pretty…Continue reading Skye Holiday: Portree Boat Trip
