I think the weather pattern changes in Scotland go much deeper than this spring cold snap.
The winter was a bad one, yes, and records were matched or broken but my point is, the weather over the year is changing. I live in Ayrshire, West
coast of Scotland and weather wise its been a good place to live. No extremes of cold or heat with the spring being fresh, the summer being overcast
and snow in winter a rarety this near to the coast.
Since Autumn 2007 things have changed. Autumn that year was overcast and slightly muggy. Winter, the same, as a matter of fact the diffirence between
seasons up till summer last year was minimal with the only diffirence being whether it was raining or not.
May 4th - May 17th last year it suddenly, without weather forcast warning bacame tropical, Ive never known it to be too warm to sleep where I live,
but it was. Unfortunatly the rest of the year was a washout untill the winter bit with a vengence.
No matter what anyione else says. the weather is changing. The wildlife is feeling it bad with birds already having built nests losing chicks due to
the cold or lack of food.
