    It's the eye of the needle that turns to face north,

    and the smaller needles stand a better chance of sitting on the skin of the water.

    Definitely sapper, i sometimes practice this method when i go to new woods and i don't know any compass direction. I have a go and then get the botton compass out to see if im right(ish) and to be fair when i 1st ststarted i kept on getting it wrong as i could never remember what direction the moss pointed to ha ha hope your two jobs are going well anyway sapper
