Still cold enough though to wear a winter coat when outside. Farmer and I went up to Glac Gugaraidh this afternoon so that we could look at the possibility of doing some fencing up there, and where the fence line might go.
As we were walking, I thought to myself, it would be too cold for Adders, surely they would still be hibernating. So I got the fright of my life when I suddenly spotted one all curled up a couple of feet away from where I was standing! Yikes!
Later on in the afternoon Farmer noticed a large bird sitting very still on the knoll next to Duill lochan. He came to get me and my long lens! Unfortunately the lens wouldn't focus as it was quite dark. So these 2 were hurriedly taken with my shorter lens! All in a days work.
And now I am sitting, it has just got dark, and a Tawny owl is hooting outside the office window.
