Scamp had decided that she was going to sit in the garden all day. A sensible decision given that the sun was going mad. We sat in the garden for a while watching movement in the pond. We couldn’t decide whether it was frogs or newts. We settled on ‘Frewts’ as the most likely suspects.
After lunch we went for a walk along past the golf course and had a couple of drinks at the clubhouse. It doesn’t seem as if you have to be a member, just as long as you’ve got money. We had money and I sampled another of these English IPAs which are very nice.
After we got back, Scamp went for more sunbathing in the garden while I went back to the wild woods to try to photograph some butterflies. I managed to get a Small Heath and a Comma. We don’t get Commas in Scotland, but apparently they are moving further north as a result of global warming. I saw a deer, but it was too fast for me and was away into the tall grass before I could get the camera ready. Also saw the pale blue dragonfly that I saw earlier in the week, but again, it wasn’t landing, just cruising, looking for a mate.
Canute and Delia came over for dinner which was an Indian take-away. Very entertaining evening. Just hope I can get to sleep in this really hot night.
Back North tomorrow. Heavy rain forecast!
