^ You cannot attach directly so first upload to say photobucket, flickr or something similar then grab the image and transfer to Shetlink. Pooks had a good post on how to do it but would take some time to find. I used photobucket but now it seems they want money if too many pics.



Was good to see the Swan arriving back to Shetland, just a pity the wind was not suitable yesterday for all the sails.

The Swan off Sumburgh Head yesterday :-
