I was cutting wood and saw a chevron of grues heading north today. it's not that long since I saw some stragglers heading south. The weather is totally screwed this year (and last).

Its not about the weather for them. Its about food and shagging.

We saw several chevrons yesterday afternoon. Impressively noisy.

We only seem to see or hear them going south in the autumn/winter - I was beginning to wonder if they just went for a full circumnavigation or if there is an awful lot of them piling up somewhere in the south!!

After two days of gardening in short sleeves (Mr Stella had shorts on but I have no desire to be flaggd up as a foreigner) I've just recieved a powder alert for more big Pyrenean snowfalls icon_Fete2 :cheerleaderkid so it would appear there is more winter to come.

The little MT has had just the one outing so far in 2018 :cry:
Mountains are for riding up and skiing down!
