    Yes it's a great park, the animals are well looked after and have plenty of space to roam around. We were there in July 2016, the weather was hot and sunny. Later that evening we were hit by some amazing thunderstorms in Aviemore :)

    Busy day delivering and selling hay and neeps in bright sunshine .A real weather market has developed as many people are short of feed for sheep cattle and horses. Outwintered livestock even with good shelter from trees etc have consumed more feed to cope with the mud /wet /extreme cold.The mud  is  really bad today after the heavy sleet of yesterday. A frost tonight will be very welcome to help dry things up.. Currently clear and 1c

    If any of the above comes off there are going to be a  lot of grumpy farmers.

    We thawed. 

    Nice drive to work this morning in the sunshine, with snow still on most of the ground and wispy mist around. Felt quite wintry. Noticeably less snow on the way home though, but it was the rain of the last two days that really did the damage there rather than today's sun.

    Yes we saw bits and pieces of sunshine yesterday which were very welcome after a grey week. 7.4c was the max. You’re temp will continue to be suppressed by snow cover, of course!

    Frosty and clear start today, -2c.

    Hazy sunshine this morning, icy, no wind, temp 0C.  Yesterday’s muddy slush and the "pond" in the garden has completely vanished.

    There was a nice dawn chorus earlier today. It's funny to think in another four weeks or so I'll be on swallow watch.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
