Hard Winter Ahead?
Whilst I am not a reliable observer of wildlife I have noticed that the wild geese are arriving earlier this year. Last year we noted them on Orkney on my birthday visit (Sept 19) but I did not see them in Moray for at least a couple of weeks after that. This year I heard and saw my first geese in Moray on Tuesday 22 Sept - about two weeks earlier than in 2008.
Is this an indication of a hard winter ahead?
The picture is from November 2008.
