A Rose-tinted Spectacle

It finally started snowing in the mountains at 7,500 feet and a mid afternoon call from Scott Rashid with news of a flock of 'rosies' saw us heading to back north to Estes Park. We were soon greeted by a flock of 100+ Brown-capped Rosy Finches and were lucky enough to help Scott trap and ring a number of birds.

Lovely pix Hugh and I am totally gripped by the Bobcat. You aint missing much in Blighty other than an oven-ready drake Wood Duck that just left its cage and headed to your patch in Shetland. I'd enjoy the ones you have there - at least they are wild...

Indeed - I will certainly not be losing sleep over a Wood Duck. Wild or not.

I bet you go straight to Brow Loch to look at it when you get back though!

I most probably will - but like I said, I'm not losing any sleep over it.
