Gorgeous photo Sheps - as always
I'm very fond of pheasants too - couldn't eat a whole one....
We had some quite tame ones at the last house. The neighbour across the road fed them regularly, and they nested in his garden. They visited us frequently - the females sometimes sat on the window ledges and pecked on the windows.
Plenty around yesterday in Glen Lyon, but I didn't take any photos. Cloud and fog right down to about 1500 feet almost everywhere, until later in the day, so it was a murky day for walking. It meant there were some good 'sky' pix, although ti was very much a 'monochrome' day
Lots of frogs in the puddles on the approach track, and in the trenches and pools alongside
Cam Chreag's corries and crags at the north end of the summit ridge were hanging onto clag, and Loch Rannoch was hard to see
The sleet and wind made it awkward to get photos at all, but the clag lifted for a few moments to allow a view of Stuchd an Lochain - one of my favourite hills, and the alternative walk for yesterday.
A few minutes later it was shrouded in cloud and fog again as the sky closed in. A bit of distant light through in Glen Lochay to the south. The snowy tops of the the two Munros there are just about visible
Little pools at lower levels are still partially frozen. The heather and wispy grasses on the edge were reflected in the surface
The sky started to clear on the way back down the glen, with a rainbow appearing too
