Thaw conditions

10th April 2009

I spotted this pair of male and female Ptarmigan creeping around the boulder field. They are never very far away from each other, also their plumage is changing very fast now from white to the motley brown and black. (The male is the one with the red strip across his eye).

The photos above are of the trident gully’s and the Fiacaill buttress in Coire an t-Sneachda.
