Monday 24th January

Here at home, the first sign of Spring is here, no it not the birth of the first lambs, but down in a sheltered spot beside the burn, the first Snowdrops are out. I always remember, years ago when I was a youngster (back in the 20th century) that we always had a rule of thumb guide to Snowdrops, that the first were normally out by the 21st of January, and it usually holds true, easy to remember as it was one of my sister's birthday too!
On to birds, and Paul Graham had been over towards Bunnahabhain this afternoon, and had seen 3 White tailed Sea Eagles tumbling about in the air.
