The settled conditions continue.

26th March 2022

It was another day which was cloudy in the morning, clearing up with long sunny spells during the afternoon. Winds were light and it was very pleasant on the hill.  Little change is occurring in the snowpack, it continues to thaw slowly. Looks like the more of the same tomorrow, perhaps turning a bit colder early next week.

Coire an Lochan

A ptarmigan starting to change into his summer plumage. It did feel quite summery this afternoon when the sun came out. The word ptarmigan comes from the Scottish Gaelic tàrmachan, meaning croaker. In Japan, it is known as the raichō (雷鳥), which means “thunder bird”. those last two facts come curtesy of Wikipedia.
