Cold day

I wouldn't want to be on Orkney right now:

I had to go to the post office at Melvich today, so instead of turning the car round in someone's driveway, I went round the loop to see if there were any oystercatchers at Portskerra. There were:

As I went back to the car, I spotted someone looking for their lunch:

And this is my favourite of the day:
