Country Diary: Memories of the first taste of nettle soup

What was so special on Tuesday August 2, 1960? Well, I arose at 4.40am on Bardsey Island, and walked to the North Cliff to record bird movement. I’d been awarded two weeks’ holiday there, along with four Dutch naturalists; two Germans; a Swedish lad, and an English couple, for the sole purpose of recording flora and fauna on this remote island off the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales. What an adventure it proved to be!

Your Day Out: Breathtaking coast views

Ravenscar is a small village about 10.5 miles north-north east of Scarborough. It was originally planned as a holiday resort in the late 19th century, but was never finished. It’s described as, “the village that never was”. Standing 600ft above sea level, on the coast overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay, visitors are overwhelmed by the dramatic view. It has become a popular place for holidays, although it still remains small. The scenery is most attractive, and the Raven Hall Hotel has a fine golf course.
