Return of the Plover
16th March 2022
A ‘spring-like’ day on Fionn Bheinn.
Warm sunshine and light winds, made for a pleasant day on the mountains. The overnight dusting of new snow was quickly melted by the sunshine below 700 metres with evidence of roller balls on steep East and South aspects at around that altitude. The old snowpack remained firm at higher elevations with no new cornice developement observed.
For the first time this forecasting season we were accompanied by the sounds of the Golden Plover and the Skylark, making a wlecome return to the slopes of the mountains.

A brief return to winter is expected tomorrow with gale force winds and snow/rain showers before high pressure starts to build giving some warmer daysÂ and colder nights ahead.
