Think I'll paint the bathroom instead. But look at the weather map - see link to Bracknell, it's looking good for Thursday, Friday and Saturday. With luck the calm weather will mean any skuas will come back on Saturday ... I'm on holiday so maybe I'll be giving it a go tomorrow anyway (if it rains I'll paint more). Whatdya mean "soft" you try sitting on Kettleness in the rain and a northerly (the Kettle points north, it aint no fun) - this isn't Filey or Scarborough or Hartlepool yknow, this is real elemental seawatching .... there goes the brollyeeeeeeeeeeee .... inland at 35 knots.
