Please Broadcast This D.E.C. Crisis Appeal

Unknown numbers of rabbits remain homeless after a spontaneous ferocious fire on Dunnet Head (and kudos to the B.B.C. News for correctly stating it’s the most northerly point on the Great Britain mainland).

On the day itself, there was mercifully little breeze so Thurso and, even, neighbouring villages remained unaffected. It created cool sun-downs, though.

The Head contains a designated site of Special Scientific Interest for both peat-land botany and bird life. I don’t know yet how these have been affected, although I spoke to one Ph.D. student researching peat-land microbial life who is desperately eager to have a lot.
