Sunday blizzards


Nasty weather hit Hsouth Hokkaido last night. Sleet and blizzards, and temperatures just high enough to turn the snow into slush.




Too dark and windy for any decent photos. The Gyrfalcon is still there and was clinging onto the top of this pole in the wind before it flew off, presumably to get some shelter somewhere.
