Ok so time is short so I haven't got time to write all this up, but I've just got back from a great days stalking in Dumfries.
I did a bit of a Wadas in that I travelled for miles, didn't shoot anything but had a bloody great day anyway!
I took a gamble on the weather, and at dawn it looked like it was going to pay off with barely a cloud in the sky, but that soon changed and the sun that did break through didn't hang around long enough to tempt the roe out.
Anyway, they say a picture tells a thousand words, so get ready for my longest write-up yet!
It was cold when I got up...
Sunrise was looking promising
Kitted up ready to go
Still looking like its going to be a good day
There was a hard frost that probably announced my arrival to anything within 3 miles!
Then the clouds rolled in
It started to snow
And the low cloud followed...
So I had a break
... as the sun came back out!
But not for long... the snow soon came back...
...so I set off home
Then... it REALLY snowed!
This covering took 5-10 minutes!
... whilst the 2 hour drive home took 4 1/2 hours...
Still, I had a great day and watching the sun come up like that made it all worthwhile.
Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you all have a great year ahead of you too!
