Mixed Spring 

This Spring in Scotland has been mostly cold with a long run of northerly winds. There was a warm spell earlier though and this well-grown leveret has escaped the worst weather.

A colony of common gulls nesting on the Aberdeenshire hills have done less l, as this clutch of abandoned eggs shows. The nest was abandoned during a snow storm which has covered the eggs, and since then  one of the eggs has been eaten.

 Meanwhile, these house martins are busy collecting mud for their nests. Taking advantage of the wet  weather.
