Anyone able to shed any light on this little fellow?

Group at the summit of the Cairnwell, with amazing visibility in all directions.

Looking out to Braeriach and Cairn Toul, still lengthy snow patches with long verticals!

Walking up the Summit of the Cairnwell from the Chairlift Station.

Looking back to the remaining cornice on Glas Maol, there is usually a bigger patch over the other side at this time of year.

The Tiger from the Chairlift, with distinct change in vegetation from dark heather dominated to lighter marking the natural snow field.

Perfect blue sky for the start of the day, looking up Carn Aosda from outside the Cafe.

Site of the former Tiger T-bar bottom station.

Heading up the Cairnwell Chairlift, breeze getting up as we climb, but warm sunshine.

The new Bi-lingual signs at the entrance to the Cairnwell side Car Park.

Close up showing winter die back of high level vegetation - keeps vegetation in approximate equilibrium preventing it growing higher.

Carn Aosda viewed from the Tiger on the walk back down the Cairnwell. The prominent line between the Carn Aosda T-bar and Access Poma is an estate road.

A beautiful day and as it turned out in parts of the Highlands the hottest day of the year so far on Saturday. Patchy early cloud and mist on the North and Eastern side of the Cairngorms was dispersing rapidly on the drive over the A939 and B976 in the morning, with unbroken sunshine on arrival at Glenshee.

Today's walk about with Dr Adam Watson was organized as a thank you for those who have contributed to snow patch monitoring over the past couple of summers.

The day started with the group meeting up in the Cafe at the base before taking the Cairnwell Chairlift up the Cairnwell and a short walk up the final section to the Summit.

Please visit the blog for a fuller account of the day and a report on the Question and Answer session with Willie Meston (manager) from Glenshee.

A big thank you to Dr Adam Watson, Iain Cameron (Firefly) and Glenshee for a fascinating day. Also thank you to everyone who made it along.
