    Friday evening, finshed work, seen a fine pair of Galway Hookers on the way home. If only I was paid enough to afford one. :(

    I'll stop after this one; I promise.

    But it was just such a pretty place to pitch.


    Staring at An Teallach. What a mountain.

    Ok; I'll get on with my trip report now. Sorry.

    Happiness is... getting out after 6 weeks stuck at home:
    Especially when the Taurus Mountains are at their spring best:
    And you have two great, new camp spots:

    This is a first for me, a wild Raven nest with chicks. When the parent saw me, it made a call I've never heard before and both chicks froze.

    I found this halfway up a mountain. A strange place for a strange fish. Any ideas?

    I still think that the Alpha looks a bit like something your mother would make you wear under sufferance as a kid. Hand knitted and itchy as F...k.;)

    Where in the world was it?

    Just guessing but could be Osprey dinner remains or if in North America maybe Bald Eagle dinner remains. It is difficult to judge scale. If it is a smallish trout skeleton it could be one a Heron caught and ended up dropping as too big to swallow in one piece.

    You've no idea on what your missing... It ain't everyone's bag... But it certainly works for me. If another brand with a similar design doesn't crop up, I'll be buying a spare once I've bought more *coff* essential items.
    There's a review in progress.... Allegedly :whistling:

    Outer Hebrides. After some searching, it look like it's a Ray of some sort... Thornback Ray is my best guess from looking at skeletons.

    Different materials, but I like my Decathlon soft-shell hoodie and that has a similar snug fitting hood. Nice and cosy - and only when I see the photos of my trip do I look like one of those old style frogmen in a diving suit. Flashbacks of actual balaclavas worn as a kid!
