However, some animals are confused by this exceptional weather. Many thanks to Kilchoan Early Bird for this picture of a puzzled lizard which was wandering around a manhole cover in the dark a few nights ago.
While March has come in more overcast, with a few millimetres of rain, the dry weather hasn't really broken. The grass crunches underfoot when we walk. The burns are almost dry. The southeasterly - once an unusual wind direction - is the norm, and we're becoming a little bored with it. What we need now is a reminder of a real Ardnamurchan winter - like a thumping good westerly gale.
