It was a dreich day in the Lammermuirs when Henry occupied this grouse shooting butt.
Earlier we had seen a Short-eared Owl, it seems to be another good year for them, and Henry was rather keen to look for voles. I was rather keen to look for a bacon sandwich.
This line of grouse butts seemed to have the butts very close together – Henry hoped that the shooters were very careful else they’d end up shooting each other.
Later, Henry heard that there were plans afoot for Hen Harrier Day in Scotland. It all sounds very exciting. More on this later.
