for the American Coot in the morning then
on to Loch Garten RSPB for Crested Tit.
With Red Grouse on the way.
with no sun only Rain and snow
it got harder to do any birding in the Cairngorm
Mountains Driving rain low down and Snow up the top
we stopped at one point and Found a Mountain Hare
so Walked up to get a photo in driving rain John got a shot off
I got to see it run over the top and out of sight.
the Weather was not with us for any of the day.
