Birds and a spring Aurora

A fantastic day yesterday with lots of wildlife, some earlier than we'd expect. The day started when we heard woodpeckers in the nearby woods. On the loch-side the swallows and red kites flew overhead while the otter played in the water.

As night fell, the skies to the north brightened and the owls hooted to announce the appearance of an aurora.
