On Thursday the 6th of January 2017 we found something quite rare at Kinnordy, some hair ice!
Hair Ice (aka frost beard or ice wool) is a frost formed in very specific circumstances. It is produced by the fungus Exidiopsis effusa and only forms on deadwood, in humid air and when temperatures are just less than 0 degrees centigrade. So we were lucky to see it!
