|Rare view of both Willow and Rock Ptarmigan together in flight against a snow covered mountain. They are still in autumn plumage - has the mild winter caused them to delay adoption of their full white winter plumage?|
After this great start things rather slowed down due to the strong wind that was constantly blowing. In three days all I saw was a Magpie, a Great Tit and I heard a Greenfinch. I was especially disappointed not to see Siberian Jay which must have been present in the forest.
Apolgies for the badly photoshopped imaged above. Here is the real photo :-)
