Loch Flemington

It's freezing clod, wet and windy, and I've been struggling to find the energy to get out and photograph the bird activity.  They continue regardless of the weather - they have to take advantage of any food they can get as the breedign season hits the peak.

Kate and I did get over to Elgin last week to get some great views of a pair of Marsh Harriers.  Wonderful, large and elegant birds of prey.  Fantastic to have them in our area.

Anyway, I've just been looking through some pics I took at the beginning of April to prove to myself that we have had some warm and sunny weather this year.  Here are a few shots from Loch Flemington to prove it.  The small ducks in the 3rd picture are male and female Tufted Ducks, a regular sight on the loch.

 But this view shows the low sun and imminent rain!
