Still shite up north: OBP

Hundred up by Day 3 and some tasty looking winds and shit, apparently (but then they said that last year).  Andy L found a Richard's by Sumburgh Farm, but we all scored with an OBP that had pitched down at the last garden on Scatness.  Much the best views I've had of this Shetland autumn regular.  Perhaps it could have come a tad closer...
