Look at that sky. I was not expecting that. I packed my thermals. We went up on the Cairngorm Mountain Railway and I spotted a Ptarmigan from the viewing platform. G went off on a guided walk and saw a Ptarmigan further up. A grand day out all round.
Extra was in the shop at the top of the railway.
Bird highlights: Ptarmigan, Golden Eagle - me, Dotterel - G.
Also Mountain Hares - G.
