After deciding not to go for the Flamborough Bluetail I did eventually venture out late afternoon. I decided to go to Pit-house West, near Rother Valley, and see if any Bitterns had returned. They hadn't and all I managed were a couple of Water Rails and due to ill fitting under garments, frozen nether regions.
Hot pie news from Shetland. My good friend Rob has uncovered a breafast pie containing Bacon, Sausage, Egg and Beans. This, it would appear, is the elusive holy grail of Shetland pies. Rob, being a well regarded pie sampler, has yet to eat this pie and has placed it in his fridge. Anyone wishing to view the pie should form an orderly que outside Sunnydell, Eastshore, Virkie. Please park sensibly at this sensitive site and respect the privacy of the residents. A charge of £1 will be made for viewing with all monies going to the Greggs rehab charity.
