I have a few things I would like to add to this excellent thread, S&F op....Im in the West Coast of Scotland, a photographer by trade and I have been
keeping free range chickens for 5 years. These first few comments are factual... We are facing the coldest march in 50 years at the moment, I believe
if the temperatures dont rise in the next week the figure will be 90 years. The snow is different and a bead like description is about right. We here
in Ayrshire have had the weatest Autumn Ive ever known with 12 inches of rain at times forming large puddles in my garden.
Imagine the seasons have changed by 3 to 4 months and then take a look at the weather you are having just now... March weather is November weather,
November weather was September weather with mild temperatures and rain.
The wildlife are behaving appropriately to my theory... My chickens output has fallen by 60% between the months of November and March from 2008 up
till 2011.....This winter my chickens have continued full output of an egg a day for every bird right up till the week beginning 4th March !....They
think its winter now..and our usual winter period was autumn.
From a professional point of view, the white balance of the sun is wrong, it is a cold white, a winter white, but should be starting to show a warm
white now....its not.
Things are changing, we can imagine many things as strange and they are not....wildlife habits dont bother with " I think", their behaviour tells its
