Higher and higher...

The view from part-way up Cairn Gorm

... but not high enough. Today we walked part of the way up Cairn Gorm in search of Ptarmigan. Didn't really go high enough as the weather looked dodgy and we were ill-equipped. Plus it was too bloody steep for a wimp like me. We did add Red Grouse to the year-list and also saw a pair of Wheatears and some Meadow Pipits. However, the view was cracking.

Species added today:
160. Red Grouse
