Well we had three seasons in one day here with lovely sunshine, snow flurries and hailstones which warranted a ‘white fleece’ rating on the fleece rating scale*. All this made our feeding stations very busy with our first sightings of Yellowhammer this year with two males sharing the bird table, the Redpoll back, excellent views of the Tree Creeper and a Great Tit accidentally sliding down the feeder pole – pole dancing for birds?!
Unfortunately our webcam server has crashed so neither the Squirrel Cam or Loch Cam are available at the moment.
*The fleece weather rating
No fleece = very hot and sunny, likely record temperatures, rarely happens
One fleece = Scottish Summer – sunny, windy with some rain thrown in
Two fleece = Scottish Spring and Autumn – wind and rain with rare glimpses of the sun
Three fleece = Scottish Winter – wear thermals
White fleece = Covered in snow, please defrost and hand me a mug of tea
