Winter Conditions in Glasgow Southside

 Juvenile Cormorant seeking lunch in the fast running Auldhouse Burn (stream).


This morning we experienced an unexpected snowfall which neatly coincided with my morning walk.

The snow provided new dimensions to the local sites and landscapes which contributed to some interesting images.

The piece de resistance being an image capture of what I had initially identified as a Grey Heron but later confirmed as a juvenile Cormorant.From my personal experience neither of these bird types are regular visitors to the local park.Maybe the Cormorant had been forced inland due to conditions at sea?
