So you'll be glad to know that we all made it home find that Becky, Chevaleresse of Camas, who'd returned early to hold the fort, had hosted some interesting visitors in our absence. I'll let her fill you in, meanwhile, the rare bird we spotted 2 weeks ago was a ptarmigan, not very common on the hills of Mull, and looking very beautiful in its white winter plumage.

I'm reliably informed that Chevaleresse is the French word for a female knight (well it sounds much cooler than Dame - we couldn't let Josef take all the credit...and emergency chocolate was definitely more crucial to our survival than the crisps!).

Em, Chevaleresse of Camas
