Glad you got on the Dunlin Dave. The Barnacles must head back to Cold Edge as they are never there on an evening.
Thanks for the help with the Nyger Dave. Theres evidence of Canadas taking it so I,ve been spreading it out a bit more. We,ve got to get Twite this year.

They were on the moor early on driving off Canadas but I can't think they've got eggs otherwise they wouldn't have legged it to the Res'r then, like you say Cold Edge.
