A whistle-stop visit to East Lothian: encounter with a scruffy juvenile heron and the seabirds of St Abbs Head.
Little did I know when I booked a day at the Nature Nuts wildlife hide that not only would I see a pine marten at lunchtime, but I’d also be the first to see one of this year’s adorable kits.
It took three years, but finally I enjoyed a wonderful weekend in the company of some of Perthshire’s amazing beavers at Bamff Ecotourism.
A weekend of wildlife including elusive puffins, seabirds, red squirrels, hares and red kites.
Mixed conditions but an enjoyable week on Mull in the company of sea eagles, otters, little birds and ever so cute young lambs – even if I never made it to Lunga…
A long-overdue return to Neil McIntryre’s stunning red squirrel hide in the Cairngorms.
A weekend of sunshine in the company of my favourite animal, the mountain hare.
My first visit to Eskrigg Nature Reserve, near Lockerbie in Dumfries and Galloway – a fantastic location for red squirrels.
Little did I know when I headed to the Scottish Highlands in early March that I’d spend quite so much time photographing crested tits.
Readers of this blog or followers on social media will be aware how much I love spending quality time with mountain hares. The setting is stunning (especially this year when coated in a thick blanket of snow) and it’s wonderful just to sit with a hare as time passes by – even when the hare does little more than twitch and do a half-hearted groom in 3 hours whilst we survive a blizzard and biting cold winds together!
