We are working in the western Cairngorms just now re-visiting old monitoring plots in the woodlands.  It’s a bit of a race to get them done before the first snows of winter arrive.

Update: the snows arrived this weekend… in an interesting contrast, back down in the Tay valley it seems like winter will never come.  Got an interesting picture on the way home of deer and horses sharing the grazing in a paddock.  Neither seemed bothered about the presence of the other…
