Snowy Wheatears

Scotland had a heat wave earlier in April prompting migrants to move back to their breeding grounds. Last week northerlies rekindled the Caledonian winter and snowy skies once again moved over the Cairngorms.

The Wheatears had beaten us back to Scotland. They had left their North African wintering grounds and arrived back in the Scottish Glens and valleys a week before we got there. I wonder if the snow made them wish they had stayed in the warm sunshine. One little chap was even keen to share our picnic lunch … who were we to deny him?
