Life in the raw

If I had taken a camera with me yesterday, I could have shown you one of our beautiful East Lothian beaches – blue sky, golden sand, glittering sea.  Gullane BeachToday, now my sister has gone home, I went for a dose of Vitamin D along the path behind the house to the woods.  I should have had a video camera today, as I watched a real life action movie of a stoat chasing a rabbit to the death in a field of stubble and then dragging it off into the hedge.  It was quite a fantastic sight, with the stoat lolloping and bounding above the stubble so that it looked as though it were flying whilst the rabbit squealed in terror.  No video camera, so this YouTube clip will have to do.
