A Whiteout

Viewers of the online camera link today will be appreciating the extraordinary weather we've been having today here in the Tweed valley which is more like midwinter than April!

Our poor Osprey couple have been sitting on the nest through snow showers and freezing winds. Late this afternoon we briefly lost view of them completely as snow settled all over the camera lens.

Surely the birds must be asking themselves why they hurried back from sunny Africa for this!
Let's hope the weather improves before our birds start egg laying and incubation duties, which could be anytime now.
