Wilderness Living

For the past two day we have been out in the wilds, living off the land and watching nature, discovering plants and njoying wonderful beetles and Butterflies - especially plenty of Marsh Fritillaries. We have seen everything from Orchids, Sundews, Worts and seaweeds through to Cinnabar Moths, Buzzards, Fulmars, Redshank, Lapwing and nesting Curlew. Magical. Cooking seafood on open fires, leaving no trace of our whereabouts and tracking deer and otters too. The weather has been kind for us and we returned bronzed and with spirits lifted. Red Deer watched on as we hiked back heavy in our sadness to leave but lighter with raised hopes and new skills to practice and develop.
