Mystery object

While I have been watching The Great British Bake Off, followed by The Missing, what looks to be a travelling Christmas tree has been making its way, v e r y  s l o w l y, up the Firth of Forth.  Now that it has drawn level and, worringly, appears to have halted its progress opposite our sitting room, I think that it might be an oil drilling platform, flanked by a couple of tugs.  There are a few of these further up and on the Fife side of the estuary.  The two tugs appear to be moving away from the glittering object.  However, these are not pretty things, and if it's still there in the morning, will be a blight on the horizon and hopefully won't stay too long!
Early Thursday morning update : it's gone!  Hooray!  Ted's very happy about that.

  1. Ha ha! Love that toothy smile. An oil rig in full view is NOT what you need.
