Had waited (like others) for news this morning - just after eight a.m. and the first confirmed news was broadcast. Picked up Tom and we were off.

So that was that - car turned around and we headed back...!
News from the Farnes is encouraging and the forecast still looks good for this week - just need to juggle night shift into the equation and I'm sorted. Bring on the rares...
