Todays leader.(used this photo as I did not take one yesterday)
Yesterday a small group from Wigton ramblers travelled to Maybole to do the regular 7 mile circular walk. 9 of us left the local swimming baths on a cloudy warm morning with the promise that rain was in todays forecast. A rather pleasant road took us away from the town up onto the local moorland where there were some excellent sightings of the local wildlife including buzzards ,yellowhammers,mistle thrush and various meadow pipets to name a few.The leader had described the walk as murder,howling dogs and venomous snakes. Well we past murder hole and the local kennels but unfortunately the snakes did not make an appearance.The walk finished back in the town where several of the group enjoyed tea and scones in one of the local tearooms.Apart from one heavy shower of rain at lunchtime we had a dry day for our outing. Thanks to the teacher who as leader added his own wee touches to the walk with his usual anecdotes etc etc.
