Picturesque posts. All had seen better days and only one was still serving its original purpose.

18th March09, Howick to Craster, 8am

Fulmars are nesting on the cliffs. Lovely relaxing birds to sit and watch unlike the kittiwakes - their noisy neighbours

This is a great geological area. Here we have layers of limestones, shales and sandstones which are disturbed by a nice, easy to see fault half way down the Howick coast path. The fulmars' cliff is a bonus volcanic intrusion that smashes through the whole lot.
