The Dawn Patroller went off to play, yesterday, on one of his photographing jaunts.
Just two hours away, through Aberdeen, and inland, this is what he found.
The snow lingers on the hills inland, good for skiers. We have none here, neither skiers or snow.
A camera shy red squirrel. (We actively discourage the grey variety.)
Plus a magnificent Red Deer Stag.
Up the Dee Valley. Waterfalls.
Back home and our lovely sheep were being sorted.
We watched them rounded up, gathered, sorted.
And weighed, some were sent one way, back into the field, and others were loaded up into a transporter.
You know when people say, "Which do you want first? The good news or the bad news?"
"Well, you lot can go off and play a bit more, but the rest of you have done really well and achieved a good weight gain...."
