Had some business in Johnshaven this morning so took the opportunity of a few blips. Only two gulls in sight - all the gulls must have been out following the ploughs I think. Worms tastier than fish perhaps! The gulls were making a real noise - I think they were trying to be heard against the roar of the waves. Or perhaps they were using the roar as a backing to their song! I wish I'd had a recorder with me. The extra gull gives an idea of the height of the waves, and the ship extra is a good indication of what the weather was like - very cold and dull!
Here's some feedback on my little vacuum. It is a bit plasticy, but it does the job perfectly. Talk about globalisation though - it was made in China, imported by an Dutch firm in Amsterdam, and sold by a German firm in Halle in East Germany. Arrived at the delivery firm in Birmingham, England, and has now come to rest in Scotland!
