Up in Cairngorm

Travelled up to Aviemore this morning and the weather was not good on the journey up.  As we came down into Aviemore however the weather cleared and it was sun and blue sky, we couldn't believe how quickly it cleared.  
We headed up to the base car park at Cairngorm to find skiers galore and the car park was packed with it blowing a gale.  I have never known it so cold in the wind, we spotted a flock of snow bunting near the car park but didn't hang around too long.  I took Mick to the place where I had seen Crested Tits last time I visited and after a short walk we spotted two.  Didn't manage any photos but will go back before we leave on Saturday and hopefully see them again.
