We Scots don't say snow we say snaw so it was snaw at the Haugh (Haugh is pronounced haw) lol
So hubby had a stupid idea of going to the Haugh today's as we never made it yesterday...who am I to say nope....
Carpark area lol
God were the paths no just icepaths..no lovely Fluffy snow!!!
And it's doon hill lol...
1st greeted by a BB
And a Buzzard who soon took off from a nearby tree
1st wee hill was bad enough
Walked along top of the fields as kids were actually using the long path down to the hides for sledging
Nice wee flock of siskins passed
Sorry lighting was not the best
My favourite tree
Walked round to the clyde
Where there were plenty PBs pals around
Baby steps along the path....
To see the frozen pond
More blooming Cormorants overhead
Goosander on the river
Light was fading
Made our way round to the hide
Siskins above us having a good munch
Not many brave birds
A crazy moorhen
And a lovely Mistle thrush to finish our chilly walk in the snaw at the Haugh
Walked back up through the woods to the car ....soooo much easier lol
Hope you all appreciate us risking life and limb to bring yous such grey photos lol
Take care all
Certainly do Linda & Hubby, must be fun to be a hardy Scottish person! Been playing with your pics ...
Yi cannie beat a bit a snaw......
The wander around The Haugh was certainly rewarding, not just with frozen fingers and toes, and runny noses, but plenty of wildlife to capture.
You did a good job of capturing the cold Linda :)
Snaw indeed, must be in your part of the world, that you speak like that, not mine! You were very brave going out in the icy cold weather to get us those photos, we'll done, both of you. Town is 10 miles away, never went into usual choir practise today, black ice, could not walk from the garage to the car! Planning a trip down to Inverness tomorrow, 2.5 hrs away but freezing again tonight. It is the first city with the bigger stores, clothing and household goods, we do have tesco, Lidl, Co op, but nice to get a trip away for some Christmas shopping, watch this space.
