Scara Brae
ancient village, atmospheric,
windswept life so long

(Scara Brae in the Bay of Skaill on mainland Orkney is the best preserved neolithic village in Northern Europe, It was revealed by a violent storm in 1850. Some 5000 years old, it was inhabited before the Egyptian pyramids were built.)

Backed Whale
thrashing tail, distressed
trapped by lobster creels

A detailed account of this encounter appears today on my blog ‘By The Wobbly Dum-Dum Tree’. There are also a couple of clips on Youtube. Look for ‘Orcan Adventures Whale Rescue’ and ‘Skipper Frees 40ft Humpback Whale’

This week I shall be posting some small impressions from my recent trip to the Orkney Isles off the Northern-most tip of Scotland. This first one was a stop on the way!
