Wigeon and a Bullfinch

Worth posting a couple of pictures from the last twenty four hours of heavy snow in Dumfries and Galloway. Despite falling with the kind of intensity that would make a Canadian cower, none of this wonderful white stuff seems to be settling with much enthusiasm, and the flurries are interspersed with extended periods of gloomy dripping. There is an enormous amount of snow lying up in the hills, and it may now be several days before I can get up to the Chayne.

As much as I feel a little downcast about the weather, it is perhaps not the worst thing to be stuck downhill on the last few days of the season, particularly given the sudden influx of wigeon down on the merse.
