Walking by the Kelvin

Up and out early in the day to walk along beside the Kelvin Burn from Auchinstarry to Twechar.  Cold walk with little to recommend it.  Saw a buzzard on a pole in the distance and am amazed that the Tamron long zoom managed to capture it in some detail.  Lots of water around, probably from snow melt from the Campsies.  Wild day with wind, hail, snow and rain.  Sometimes all at the same time.  Also some sun too.

Leaf impaled on a thorn branch.  I liked the colours and the effects of the backlight.

H is for Hawk was a dreadful book, no matter what Costa thought.  B is for Buzzard is my choice, and wildlife of the day.  Just a crop from the centre of the image.

High water on Dumbreck marshes, but a wee touch of blue sky for a change.  Most of the water came from melting snow on the Campsie Fells I think.

A lot of different lichen here.  Most proliferous being  Cladonia fimbriata, but many others too.
