Rare red kite spotted gliding gracefully over Loch Ness this afternoon before disappearing into the clouds. Snow showers today but now brightening up. The red kite has a very distinctive forked tail.

The snow melt and heavy rain caused Loch Ness to become very high. Lower Foyers river burst its banks both sides as well as many other rivers in the area. Loch Oich had trouble with a weir collapsing and breaching the Caledonian Canal and repair work will take a lot of money and time. Large boulders came loose and blocked the A82 causing this main road between Inverness and Fort William to be closed for repair all weekend.....nice and quiet for us. Today the weather is beautiful and the sun is shining and the sky is blue......real Spring like and hopefully the worst is now behind us.
