Some respite at last?

Saturday dawned somewhat cloudy with frosty conditions still prevailing. A little later, and following a few snow flurries, the temperature improved and much of the remaining snow and ice began to disappear, although, in all honesty, it didn't feel much better!!

Birdwise the changes didn't result in any immediate alteration in feeding areas so the "birdscene" was much as yesterday. Looking at Loch Indaal from afar, so as not to cause any undue disturbance, nothing really new was apparent.

Later , in a quest to locate a suspected new Hen Harrier roost, I managed to get a bird on dusk in transit to wherever is actually being used, a small step further, and so can move the vantage point half a mile or so!
