Snow in Late April

Quite heavy snow overnight but by mid-morning most of it had melted from lower altitudes, leaving only Largo Law standing out with its white covering.

The snow melt left pools of water in the fields at the foot of Largo Law.

Swans Nesting

For some years now mute swans have nested amongst the rushes on the small island in Birnie Loch and it looks as if they are going to do the same again this year.

Normally only one pair of swans nest on one stretch of water and the male defends the territory.

There were also a number of black-headed gulls, tufted ducks, pink-footed geese and the ever present mallards.
