Lundy Spring – Part One

Posted on March 6, 2018


The much anticipated trip back to the island was an adventure to say the least. There was snow-much going on due to the ‘beast from the east’ or storm Emma as she was also known; that the episode will be divided into four parts.

This, the first one, is typically early spring, the cull is in full swing and big skies are full of dark clouds. Ominously.
