COLDER AND OTTER

We set off early this morning intending to visit Skye for the first time. Two male Black Grouse in a field and two females in a tree further down the road gave us a good start on a very frosty morning.
Half an hour in and the snow started to fall and it fell hard all day spoiling most of the special vistas along our route but also adding something to the trip with it's own magic.

On Skye Suzanne found an Otter (She's a top Otter spotter) and it sat long enough for the camera to catch a couple of images before slowly drifting along the shore.
Mountain Goats and Roe Deer were the other highlights of a difficult day which ended with a trip to Applecross where we enjoyed knee deep snow for a while and another eight Black Grouse before heading home for a much needed curry night by the fire.
