    I just hope the area around hawick has cleared in a couple of weeks as I've got a trip up to my new stalking grounds in the new year

    Leighton moss is at the back of my home, it can drop as quickly as it rises as its next to the sea also silvedale is under a lot of lime stone. They may temp move up the crag as the marshes rise but will return.
    I keep each of the becks either side of my cottage free as they run off the tops which run into the lake at the back of me which is high by when high brings otters into my garden.

    O Yeh, it was scary. Every couple of hours you could see the water levels risinge, becks becoming louder. I've lost a few chickens. I was more nervous about the winds, watching 40 odd foot ish ash and oak trees moving the way they were was a hairy moment. I heard a couple pheasants shoots were cancelled not down to rain but the winds and debris falling.

    No stalking, but I have family up there who are currently cut off in the hills with both bridges below condemned.
