14th January 2023
There was fresh snowfall to around 600 metres. The new snow is quite wet and is mostly lying over the bare ground up to approx. 850 metres. Once above 850 metres it was back in the ‘white room’ again. It was definitely brighter than yesterday with a little bit more definition but still required a compass to avoid wandering aimlessly around the plateau of Carn an Tuirc. Around midday the skies did clear a little and the were some fleeting views before some afternoon showers. No beetles today (thank you to Steve who identified yesterday’s beetle as a Violet Ground Beetle) but lots of Hares. They were too fast and well camouflaged for me to get a decent photo. Some more snowfall overnight, with a freezing level dropping to 200 metres by the end of the day. Stay wintery with Northerly winds into the start of next week.
