Definitely an upsurge, but still not near as many as I mind when I wis peerie. I always knew them by what I thought was a Shetland name : Spinnywillies.

 

Seems to be a lot more localised than I thought though. I won't mention where I'm frm (for those who don't know) 'till i see where else it is used.

I hadn't heard "spinwillies" until recently. I heard it from a Whalsay person...

 

My grandfather always referred to them as "Willie Lang Legs"!
