Snow Shower

The second of our April bird watching trips to Scotland was successfully concluded on Monday. We once again saw much.

A trip up the mountains for Ptarmigan was delightful. The weather is always fickle up there and even in midsummer the clouds can close in and indeed we were lucky to avoid the ‘birding in a milk bottle’ scenario of a heavy snow shower. We saw and photographed Ptarmigan but we also stumbled upon Snow Buntings. We are used to these little fellows in Norfolk of course but seeing them in their true environment was delightful.

We watched this cheeky minx bathing in the snow and then drying out in the wind.
