Heavy snow in the early morning lasted only a few hours and by midday had all but thawed. Chiffchaffs sang among the snowy branches above the Cormorants nests and 80+ Sand Martins were flying about - god knows what they are eating in this arctic blast.
This pair performed the "weed dance" 5 times during a 7 hour period. Its pot luck whether you get any photos of the dance as it is over within seconds. The water was constantly changing colour due to the light, making it hard not to blow the white underparts out.
