Snow was apparently on the way today, but this morning, this is what it looked like at Musselburgh
The catkins on the pussy willow tree are starting to open
and the black headed gulls are halfway to getting their black heads back
Actually their breeding season heads are dark brown rather than black. At the moment individual gulls have differing amounts of black on their heads. I think it's the dominant males that are the first to get their full 'black' heads back.
When I arrived back in Edinburgh it had started raining. No snow yet though.
