"The Orkney Sherpa"
Returning from an early morning, pre-breakfast, country-side walk our guests were dismayed to report sight of small bird fluttering and entrapped by a barbed wire fence.
Stan Groundwater, amateur ornithologist, (known by some as the Orkney Sherpa) was reported to be unavailable whilst preparing for a Pure Orkney clifftop walking tour that day. Within a few minutes of him hearing our message however, he arrived and sought directions to the bird.
The Islands visitors were delighted to learn that the little Meadow Pipit had been extricated from the fence and was once again flying freely. They were undoubtedly impressed by our caring community.
Our thanks to Stan groundwater for his compassion to stop what he was doing for the sake of saving a little creature.
