Not a very good day weather wise, raining most of the day so we decided to head for the hills and were glad we did as winter had arrived there.
Counted about 25 Ptarmigan when we first looked out from the Ptarmigan Restaurant at the top of Cairngorm. The blizzard then hit and we couldn't see a thing, then when it cleared we managed to locate a few a bit closer than they had been although still distant. Nice to see all the same.
A flock of Snow Bunting flew past but didn't stop.
